Stillwater was in Starbucks for two days and drank 15 lattes while she waited for officials in the U.S. Army to change their minds.
She had been approved to be embedded with troops in Iraq but that was later canceled.
Jane Stillwater is a blogger and wanted to cover the war. She was granted the protected status and immediately bought a ticket to Kuwait.
But within hours, the military said it made a mistake and she would not be embedded.
She took the flight she bought the ticket for anyway and waited at a Starbucks for two days hoping the miltary would reconsider.
But it didn't.
Reimbersment was also denied so she filed a lawsuit.
