This is an oldie-but-goodie. The US Supreme Court Justices upheld a
fine made against a male lawyer for a frivolous lawsuit he made.
Apparently, he was forced
to share a men's restroom with women (!)
at a San Diego rock concert in 1995. The suit against the city was for
$5.4 million dollars. The judge decided that he
should pay the
$2,000, and also another two grand to the concessions company
he had found liable, because they sold him the beer that made the bathroom
How awful for him! Poor baby. Maybe this is a sign of the civil court
system finally turning around... yeah, and maybe I'm a Chinese jet
pilot. I guess he didn't buy the beer, the company sold
it to him. One, you see, makes him responsible. The other puts them at
fault. Don't you hate it when people grab money out of your wallet and
stick a cup of beer in your hand?
