Can I sue someone for _____?

I’ve got another really good Matt Levine bit.

[I am a former lawyer, so people sometimes ask me questions about the law, which I sometimes answer for entertainment purposes only and not as legal advice. One standard form of question that I get a lot is “can you sue someone for _____,” to which I always answer “yes, of course, anyone can sue anyone for anything, this is America, though you might not win.”]
