Reform, Legislation, Policy

New Lawsuits

  • Lord Jesus Christ hit by car in my little town of Northampton, Mass.; says he thinks it was an accident but has a lawyer anyway.  (MassLive.com)
  • Media hears "Starbucks" and "hot beverage" in the same sentence, writes a story evoking Stella Liebeck and calls it a day.  (Turkewitz)

Damages

  • $500 million in punitive damages to pharmaceutical companies for plaintiffs getting hepatitis C due to reuse of vials; allegation is, I guess, that the vials the pharma companies used were too big and thus encouraged (?) reuse.  (Google/APDaily Finance
  • Family of eight-year-old killed by negligently installed and inspected carnival ride will receive no compensation on top of roughly $2 million already received (MassTort.org)
