Thread: Lawyers These Days...

  1. Default Lawyers These Days...

    You know the quality of the members of the Bar is going down the tubes when a suit like this is filed:

    Lawsuit: Defendant Breached a Duty Not to Shoot Bottle Rockets Out of His Anus

    http://www.loweringthebar.net/2012/0...le-rocket.html

    Why not sue?

    The kid went to a frat party, got drunk, and attempted to shoot a bottle rocket out of his sphincter. It blew up, startled him, and he fell off the deck at the frat house - a deck that they claim was missing the railings around it.

    I'd sue.

    And when I won, I'd take the money, move away, and change my name, because I'd never be able to look anyone in the face again!

    I don't understand what's wrong with this lawsuit. Someone was injured by someone's dumb behavior.

    What's the problem? Are you saying someone should be allowed to sue when stupid behavior hurts them?

    Maybe you could explain what the problem is with this lawsuit?

    Why shouldn't a person in the Plaintiff's position sue?

    In the current version of America suing under circumstances such as these is the normal thing to do. This speaks to the changes America has undergone as a culture. It also speaks to the change in the character of the legal profession.

    In a prior era the events on which the OP is based would have been a source of shame.

    Bottle rocket; anus. oh, that's rich.
    If we do not learn from the past, we will keep making the same stupid mistakes

    The plaintiff was injured by the negligent acts of the defendant(s). Grossly negligent acts.

    You expect the plaintiff to shoulder the burden for their injuries caused by the other people here? Who caused the injuries?

    Lawyers? Or the law? Isn't it Conservatives who say there is too much interference by government changing things?

    So, there it is. The ability to sue at what could be considered something frivolous and also culpable negligence by the litigant.

    I wish someone would answer my question using the facts in this case.

    What, exactly, about this case means it "could be considered something frivolous"?
