Beth Keeley’s piece on frivolous lawsuits correctly identifies the Bush proposals as aimed more at profit than consumer safety but then she does what so many on both sides do, she cites two outrageous examples of frivolous lawsuits and then explains that our courts are bogged down. I am still waiting for either the Left or the Right to actually provide me numbers. How many lawsuits are actually brought nationwide? Which are these are dismissed as frivolous and how much time do they actually tie up? Without this information an argument based on two anecdotes is as frivolous as the lawsuits that supposedly plague our courts.
