Note to my fellow Maryland attorneys: please stop filing silly lawsuits. Not every modicum of injustice needs to be righted through the judicial system. I promise.
Max Kennerly gives an impassioned defense of injured plaintiffs’ rights to “lawyer up.” He writes: “There’s nothing wrong whatsoever about the Joneses hiring a lawyer or with that lawyer conducting his own investigation. We do the same day in and day out. So do all plaintiffs’ firms that aren’t just advertising shells. People have rights. People want to know what happened to their loved ones. Lawyers can help with both.” Maybe Max has set up a little bit of a straw man but, still, he crushes that straw man.
A judge has tossed out a lawsuit filed against Google by a woman who claimed her Google Maps walking directions led her to cross a highway. We have 311 million people in this country. A small minority of them are going to file dumb lawsuits. This has been happening in this country for over 300 years. Get over it already. Stop pretending the extreme is the norm.
My blog posts on Haro v. Sebelius have gotten a lot of traffic. Turns out, lots of attorneys are dealing with Medicare liens. Who knew?
