Lawsuits, Lawsuits, Lawsuits – Part 2Posted: May 14, 2007
I think it’s high time we had lawsuit reform.
Reform #1: If lawsuit is deemed frivolous, plaintiff pays for defendant’s legal fees, court costs, and some penalty to be divvied between the court and the defendant(s).
Reform #2: Neither party is allowed to spend more on legal fees and/or time spent, in the case of pro bono.
Reform #3: If a plaintiff has had 3 lawsuits deemed frivolous, they are barred from suing for one year. A fourth is 5 years. A fifth is 10 years.
Reform #4: A lawyer who’s had 3 or more lawsuits dismissed for frivolity is suspended for one year. A fourth is grounds for disbarment. A fifth is automatic disbarment.
