According to a report by the Austin American-Statesman, the sequel to James Gunn's superhero space romp Guardians of the Galaxy has just recently been at the center of a freaky lawsuit by a fan named Brandon Vezmar suing his date for not paying attention to the movie. How any of them get to meet anyone to even have a first date (much less a relationship) is beyond me. They went on a first date to a movie theater to see "Guardians of the Galaxy".
When the Statesmen reached out to the date, the 35-year-old woman said she had no idea she was being sued and called the notion "crazy".
Meanwhile, The Austin American-Statesman hascontacted the defendant, who asked that her name not be used.
The women told the newspaper in Austin that she refused to pay Vezmar back because "he took me out on a date" and that she's not a "bad woman".
"It wasn't like constant texting", the woman continued. She reportedly left and never came back, driving off.
Vezmar said he later demanded that she return his ticket money, but she refused as it was a date. "This is insane." It was the first she had heard of the suit.
Regardless, she may still have to answer for her behavior in petty small claims court.

Trump approval rating hits new low in poll

Reporters barred from China event seeking investment in Kushner project
So for them, seeing the Kushners come, seeing the Kushners connection to the Trump White House, it's a very natural association. Nearly all EB-5 investors are Chinese nationals, but the government keeps their names confidential.
The suit says texting is in "direct violation of the theater's policy, adversely affecting the viewing experience of [Vezmar] and others". According to Brandon, his date activated her phone 10 to 20 times in a 15-minute period to send and receive texts.
Texas' own Alamo Drafthouse is offering some assistance to the man in the middle of a $17 dollar lawsuit with a woman he accuses of improper date etiquette and ditching him at the theater.
"Guardians" director James Gunn, for one, thinks it's not enough (we really hope he's joking).
Tweeting a link to Brandon's story, he said: 'Why stop at suing?
"Phones are the modern day security blankets for so many people nowadays", wrote one commenter.
She contends that she only texted two or three times.
