    Question US Justice ("Jest"ice) System

    My god, is it any wonder the US court system is backlogged with nuisance, get rich quick suits? What a total joke! Why in gods name did the trial judge not toss this out completely? And to have had this case started by a judge, mindboggling...

    A judge who is suing a dry cleaner that lost his trousers for $54 million left the courtroom in tears Tuesday after saying he is acting in the interests of all District of Columbia residents against what he claims are poor business practices. Administrative law judge Roy L. Pearson first sued Custom Cleaners over a pair of pants that went missing two years ago. He was seeking about $65 million under the D.C. consumer protection act and almost $2 million in common law claims.

    Or how about sending a 17 yr old honour roll student to jail for 10 YEARS for getting a hummer at a party...

    Don't forget that the lawyers get 33-50% of the cut. Big lawsuits are more about what fees the lawyer gets. Shakespeare was correct.
