A Hiatus Perhaps

I (Bill) am typing mostly one handed as I broke my pinky this morning.  (I fell off my bike.  In our yard.  Please feel free to make fun.)

Typing one handed is slow and annoying.  I thus might not be posting for a bit.  Good thing there are two other people here, no?

I believe a class action for negligent infliction of emotional distress is in order, since so many of us will be harmed by your absence and by relentless worrying over your condition.

(Get well soon...)

I doubt anyone will make fun. I took a motorcycle safety course. The take home message? Ride, and you die. In two thirds of deaths, the rider has done nothing wrong. Everyone who rides a two wheeled vehicle has been injured.

One has to note, you are taking personal responsibility. You are not suing. You are doing the right thing. This makes the teaching of product liability a bit hypocritical. Most law profs advocate bizarre, invalid, damaging legal gotcha in class. At home, they live the most responsible, ethical, and traditional life. They never act in their life as they advocate in class that plaintiffs do.

I would be interested in a survey of torts profs. Do they sue people less or more than others? Among tort profs injured by the negligence of others, by a defective or inherently dangerous product, are they more or less likely to sue?
