  • Time To Pay The Piper
  • Folks, I'm rarely if ever an advocate for tort attorneys or supportive of our tort system, but I'm making an exception here.

    Hit 'em hard.

    Make 'em pay.

  • Since I am mostly an insurance defense attorney, I kind of share the dig at tort attorneys. BUT, it seems that the attitude changes when someone has a claim that might get them some $$$. I try to remind folks that no attorney renders the verdict. Your friends and neighbors do. They decide what a case is worth and they mostly decide whether a case is a case (with some help from judges). So, if our friends and neighbors determine to render these stupid verdicts, they are the ones to blame. The plaintiff attorneys are often greedy beyond imagination but, they are just asking. Your friends and neighbors render the verdicts. They need educatin"

  • Agreed. I have had occassions to be on juries, I was named a co-defendant with a local public utility in a civil action for claimed fraud and I was a witness in two employee-employer lawsuites that asked for damages. I have also been a victim of a crime. Very enlightening. Right does not always win. And, I also believe that some Judges are politically prejudiced and contributions influenced.

  • What is troubling for me is 3 things: 1. Where were the chaprones for these teens?
    2. Why didn't they intervene and lead the teens away from a confrontation? (see #1)
    3. Why initially was the school district so quick to condem the teens and threaten expulsion?
    None of my questions are intended to relieve the media, the talking heads and the ignorant "entertainers" from any liability. I hope they have to pay...BIG TIME! Now that would be free college for all of those teens if lawyers don't suck it all up.
    If it were to end up it the US Supreme Court:
    "I love Trump,
    Trump loves me,
    Fake news networks
    Lie to me
    With a great big wall
    and a spicey tweet or 2,
    Soon the court rules,
    7 to 2"
    Received in a text message.
