Another day, another ‘frivolous’ lawsuit that’s actually an interesting factual dispute:

Elana Elbogen, a litigator at Kelley Drye in New York, married David Glatt at Cipriani 42nd St. this summer. She wasn’t happy with the floral arrangements. So she sued.

In a breach-of-contract lawsuit filed Friday against Posy Floral Design Studios in New York state court, Elbogen alleges that the florist substituted pastel pink and green hydrangeas for the dark rust and green hydrangeas that she had specified for the centerpieces. Other issues, says the lawsuit: “using wilted and/or browned flowers, leaving the event without filling half the centerpiece vases with water, and using dusty and dirty vases.” Here are stories from the NYT and NY Post.

Here’s the interesting part:

The bride, Elana Glatt, says her florist committed a series of faux pas at her wedding on Aug. 11. In the most "egregious," Ms. Glatt says in a lawsuit alleging breach of contract, the florist substituted pastel pink and green hydrangeas for the dark rust and green hydrangeas she had specified for 22 centerpieces.

Not only was the color wrong, Ms. Glatt said in the lawsuit, filed on Friday in State Supreme Court in Manhattan, but the hydrangeas were wilted and brown, and arranged in dusty vases without enough water.

Stamos blamed the "completely unwarranted" suit on Glatt’s lawyer bride, Elana. "She’s being a Bridezilla," he fumed, claiming that Elana would order elaborate arrangements that her future mother-in-law, who was paying for the flowers, would then trim down.

"They sent us 200, 250 e-mails changing things up until the last minute. We did everything they wanted," he said.

Taking everyone’s comments at face value, this plaintiff’s claims should be quite simple to prove or disprove. There’s apparently a long trail of e-mails identifying exactly what was requested and dozens of witnesses to the final product.

$400,000 in damages certainly sounds high for a $27,435.14 (ouch) floral contract, but as the Conglomerate notes, NY sometimes awards emotional distress for breach of contract. And the damages in a plaintiff’s complaint usually are as high as they possibly can be, not necessarily because nothing less will be sufficient, but because of worries that requesting anything less may come back to bite the plaintiff if the jury ends up awarding more.
