Frivolous Lawsuit: Man Sues Chinese Actress Over Intense Stare

Rules making it easier to file lawsuits in China have led to a new concern over frivolous claims, such as one in which a man says actress Zhao Wei stared at him too intensely through his TV set.
The regulations making it more difficult for courts to reject lawsuits took effect May 1, leading to an increase in cases nationwide last month of 29 percent compared with same period last year, to just over 1 million cases.
Li Heping, a Beijing lawyer said, "Previously, it was difficult for administrative cases, such as people suing governments, to be accepted."
