Lawsuit for not asking before reclining the seat

Chinese lawsuit for reclining seat without asking before reclining. The seats have a sign to ask.

To be pedantic, not ask but "please notify the passengers in the rear row when adjusting your seat angle." Kinda of like using a turn signal when driving.

That said, I find the lawsuit interesting. I see both sides.

Not pedantic at all. There's a huge difference between asking and telling. The only reason this suit was successful is because the rail operators require notice when seats are reclined otherwise there is no obligation to inform the person behind that you are about to move the seatback.

I would have gone with a 50/50 split myself, but it's cool that the court thought about both sides.
