Frivolous lawsuits have extended their reach to the NFL. When Cowboys owner Jerry Jones heard this one, I’m sure it took him awhile to stop laughing.

According to the USA Today, a woman named Jenelle Carillo is suing the Dallas Cowboys and owner Jerry Jones. The reason? She burned her butt on a bench outside the stadium. In August. In Dallas. The temp was over 100 degrees that day. Imagine that.

“She knew, while she was there at the stadium, that she had received some burns. But she didn’t realize how serious they were until she received medical attention,” attorney Michael Walsh told the CBS affiliate in Dallas-Forth Worth.

Attorney Walsh said that his client was “hospitalized for about a week (and) had some very serious injuries.”

The USA Today also reports that Carillo is seeking unspecified damages for causing mental anguish, physical pain, disfigurement. She has requested a jury trial and is seeking to recoup court fees, damages and interest.

Sounds to me like she had some mental anguish before this. Perhaps she’ll next sue her car manufacturers for sitting on a hot leather seat in the summer?

Carrillo says Cowboys Stadium failed to alert patrons that sitting on the benches in the heat could cause injuries.

“The bench was uncovered and openly exposed to the extremely hot August sun. The combination of the nature of the black, marble bench and hot sunlight caused the bench to become extremely hot and unreasonable dangerous,” the suit says.

So why did she sit on it? And final question: Is she related to the “Fell in the Fountain Texting Lady”?
