The great thing about being a lawyer is that other lawyers write the rules we all live under. Unsurprisingly, the primary purpose of the rules is to enrich lawyers. That’s why we get insanity like this:
A New Jersey woman who was struck in the face with a baseball at a Little League game is suing the young catcher who threw it.
Elizabeth Lloyd is seeking more than $150,000 in damages to cover medical costs stemming from the incident at a Manchester Little League game two years ago. She’s also seeking an undefined amount for pain and suffering.
Lloyd was sitting at a picnic table near a fenced-in bullpen when she was hit with the ball.
Catcher Matthew Migliaccio was 11-years-old at the time and was warming up a pitcher.
A jury has awarded a Georgia woman $3 million over her husband’s heart attack, finding that his doctor should have warned the Atlanta cop against strenuous activity like the three-way sex he was having at the time he died, WXIA-TV reports.
William Martinez, a 31-year-old Atlanta police officer, collapsed and died while he and a male friend were having sex with a woman who was not his wife at an Atlanta airport motel in 2009.
Lawyers collect a large portion of all proceeds. To defend yourself from these increasingly absurd lawsuits also requires turning over massive amounts of money to lawyers — often enough to lead to personal bankruptcy, which you can file for after paying more lawyers.
A substantial chunk of the loot is kicked back to the Democrat Party in return for making sure the rules aren’t changed.
