TV judge Simon Cowell is being sued for $3.8 million for just doing his job.

Simon Cowell sued by a British contestant for $3.8 million. The contestant has sued Simon Cowell for injured feelings, exploitation, humiliation, degradation, and barbarism. It seems even a critical judge like Simon Cowell can actually be sued for barbarism.

Cowell is being accused of humiliating British contestant Emma Amelia Pearl Czikai, who claims she was degraded on the TV show in a broadcast in May 2009. Czikai first lodged her complaint of unfairness and discrimination with a British employment tribunal in January. The tribunal action emerged in the press following a pretrial review at the central London tribunal court.

Czikai, representing herself, accused the show and its judges of "exploitation, humiliation, degradation and barbarism." She also claimed the show was guilty of disability discrimination because it had not made adjustments for her, such as lowering the level of backing music and microphone levels. "This program makes a select number of rich people very, very rich on the backs of the ordinary man and woman in the street through exploitation, humiliation, degradation and a re-emergence of modern-day barbarism with all its inherent cruelty," Emma Amelia Pearl Czikai said in a statement.

The one-time nurse reportedly told the tribunal she suffers from cervical spine neuritis, which can cause head and shoulder pain, which in turn caused her singing to suffer. The pretrial review, which will decide if a full hearing will go ahead, was told that she was seeking $458,000 for injured feelings and compensation of $1.5 million. In addition, she claims a loss of earnings of $1.9 million. I'm all for helping those that have injured feelings, but a $3.8 million lawsuit against Simon Cowell is a bit unreal.
