FUNNY EVERY TIME haha. Dont know why. I really thought I'd get sick of hearing that when I tell people what I do, but I cant help but laugh.

Oh nevermind, thats it! Only 100 trillion. You can't even buy a continent with that much these days.

I have yet to have a bad biscuit from that establishment. Maybe I just have a good one near me.

Why? Because she put a huge price tag on what the lost time with her children means to her?

It's probably too late to help her, but that article even mentions that she's insane. I mean 900 trillion dollars. No sane person would sue for that much (let alone think they can get away it). She needs to be in a place, with people exactly like her, even if she doesn't want to. With the way things are going, her kids are probably going to grow up to be nutjobs too.

I dont see where it says shes insane.


I see allegations, but not concrete statements.


Also the whole point of putting outlandish settlement amounts on civil lawsuits it so that when it does get reduced it will still probably much more than the litigant ever thought they would receive.

I've often thought it would make things much more reasonable if, when people decide to sue for some amount of money, it is an all-or-nothing deal. So if you sue for a billion dollars because you slipped on somebody's sidewalk, the court will decide if it is worth A BILLION DOLLARS. If no, then you get nothing. I dislike the idea of being deliberately unreasonable in an attempt to get a high settlement that will seem low only by comparison.

On the other hand, I'm sure somebody could find, without too much trouble, and example of a case where that would be a very bad thing. So perhaps, as ridiculous as that process seems, it may be a necessary evil overall.

A settlement is a negotiation, a ruling on the other hand has no negotiation. A jury typically decides fault and then basis the reward based on guidelines set out a the onset of trial.

In your opinion.

Of course, shoe on the other foot and someone fucks with my kids, I'm not looking for money. I'll be out for blood.
