The Court system is craven. It lacks courage to dismiss meritless suits at an early stage. Parties settle because the cost of proceeding through discovery and then moving for summary judgment is astronomical.

let's not forget that the root of all this is evil is the universal truth that lawyers are complete scumbags

You have misspelled the word lawyer. It is spelled " L.....I.....A.....R ".

Thanks. </sarcasm>

The problem with blaming this on lawyers is at some point, in most proceedings, the lawyers are working for free.

I hope this lawsuit is dismissed, otherwise it's a disastrous precedent to set. The minute word gets out that NYC is doling out millions to anyone who sprains an ankle on city land, that entire state will be broke in no time.

*edit* Nevermind, I see that the city was still dumb enough to pay out $95,000. It's no five mils but I guess she'll take whatever she can get.



Just remember............Karma.....Karma.......Karma... ........
The future is able to answer many concerns of the past.
