I realize that there are some justifiable claims being filed, but lately, I have also noted some stupid lawsuits getting filed and I don't understand how this can take place. Isn't there some kind of plausiblity required before filing a suit?
A case of point: The judge that is suing the dry cleaner for tons of bucks over a lost pair of pants.
He is suing because he "had" to rent an automobile to drive clear across town to go to another dry cleaner. I'm sure you are familiar with this DC case. What happened to common sense, folks?? What happened to just plain old human error that is forgiven??
Too often, it seems, the system is bogged down with stupid, small, and petty stuff.
Also, the Simpson-Goldman-Brown suits. What the hell is Fred Goldman thinking?? He is tying up thousands of hours to extract money from Simpson. These thousands of hours belong to the public, Goldman gets nothing and nothing is accomplished. When and where does this end?
How is someone acquited criminally, but can be found responsible in civil court? I know the burden of proof isn't as great, but it makes no sense to me.
Anyone have any answers for me?? And, if you-and I don't like your answer, can I sue you??
