My favorite type of article; ranting on the ineptitude of the judicial system in the good ol' US of A. Lets review the facts shall we? (I miss Scooby Doo!)
A clerk attempts to brighten the mood of a 12-year by joking with her. Ofcourse, she and her blood-thirsty family, who may or may not be drowning in debt, up to you to conclude, view this as an opportunity for a quick pay-off, and immediately, a schmuck takes the case to court:
They claimed Dominica is sensitive to light, and that she suffered burns to her face and lower eyelashes and, later, severe psychological problems, including post-traumatic stress and Tourette's syndromes.
For those who are not aware, Tourette's is often linked to excessive foul language. This is not a criminal case, but bad parenting. EXTREMELY bad parenting.
The girl was 12 years old 6 years ago; meaning shes a down-on-her-luck 18 year old with nothing better to do, probably uneducated, knocked up, no jo, no probspects, no luck.
Why is it, that every foolhardy imbecile believes they can bilk the judicial system with such outlandish claims? One moron alerted people to this; and I believe it to be the idiot that burnt their tongue on a cup of coffee from McDonalds, got into an accident, and blamed good ol' McD that they didnt put a warning on their cup that the content was hot.
Its coffee. What do you think?
Or the person that walked their dog in the rain, then decided to dry them up... In the microwave.
Personal liability suits are a dime-a-dozen, and I really wonder what else these clowns will come up with.
Stop wasting your money on dead-beat lawyers and WAKE UP! Earn an honest buck and be done with it, and oh yeah, GROW UP!
As always, heres the official article.
