Turkish Mayor Sues Christopher Nolan

From Wikipedia:

On November 7, 2008, Batman Mayor Hüseyin Kalkan began looking into the possibility of suing Christopher Nolan, director of Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, and Warner Bros., distributor of the films, claiming the studios had been using “Batman”, the name of the superhero, without permission from the city, and “placing the blame for a number of unsolved murders and a high female suicide rate on the psychological impact that the film’s success has had on the city’s inhabitants.”

And yes, this is really happening.
Variety has more.
