Lawsuit of the Year 2006

From Overlawyered, we learn that the Readers' Choice (tort) lawsuit of the year was this one:

From the United Kingdom: "A devout Christian who said an accident at work boosted his libido and wrecked his marriage as he turned to prostitutes and pornography was awarded more than 3 million pounds in damages [last month]. Stephen Tame, 29, from Suffolk, suffered severe head injuries in a fall, transforming him from a loyal newlywed into a 'disinhibited' character who had two affairs." (Reuters, Dec. 19; Rajeev Syal, "Man whose head injury inflamed his sex drive wins £3.2m payout", Times Online, Dec. 20; Kathryn Lister, "£3m compo for sex mad hubby", The Sun, Dec. 20).

...and he gets to keep the sex.
