Kathleen Turner Hit by Baseball, Michael Douglas
Doesn't Care! CARES!

Nope, not kidding. Though it ain't the Hollywood stars, and this isn't a sequel to The War of the Roses. This is a different Kathleen Turner, who was hit by a baseball at a Las Vegas 51s game.
Now I've never been to a 51s game (though I dig that they didn't cram an unnecessary apostrophe into their name), but I've been to many ball games. Anyone in the stands is aware that a foul ball could come screaming at them. Many bring their own gloves for just such an occasion. Suing because she didn't "heads up" when the ball was tipped in her direction is just silly. I'm glad Michael Douglas (and the other judges involved) agree.
UPDATE: As was pointed out in the comments section below, I was wrong, wrong, wrong. Michael Douglas did care after all! He was a dissenter in his opinion. My fault for not reading all the way through to the end. . .
