Fighting Rattlesnakes (and Frivolous Suits)
by

My latest at CFIF is here.

In his 2011 State of the Union Address, President Obama promised to support legislation “to rein in frivolous lawsuits.” Early next month, the House Judiciary Committee will vote on a bill to make Obama fulfill that promise….To correct these flaws, Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith, R-Tex., introduced the Lawsuit Abuse Reduction Act (LARA).

Most of us, of course, remember the $65 million suit (or however much it was supposed to be for) filed by a DC judge angry that the dry cleaners had not handled his pants properly.  The column linked above explains how such frivolous suits can be warded off.

And yes, I mention rattlesnakes (of a sort), along with bottom feeders.
