I believe that there is/was a concept in US law where rich companies sue average Joes for some small stuff (e.g. their product sounds similar or something). Those companies know very well that judges would find the defendants innocent, but they pursue the lawsuit anyway, because Joe doesn't have enough money to pay the legal costs in the long term so he settles with the company. So the company wins in the end even though they shouldn't.

How was this called?
