That's because people don't educate themselves. Like- actually educate themselves. Not just read a forum full of other misinformed people- but read up on actual cases and learn the facts.
The truth here- like most of the law suits filed and posted on this forum- are that no facts have been presented yet. It could be a completely bogus charge, but it might be completely legitimate. But of course, no one wants to wait on actual facts and evidence to pass judgement. They'll just do that right now WITHOUT ANY evidence or facts. And they'll argue until they are blue in the face that their opinion is correct- even though, again, no evidence or facts have been presented. It's unbelievable. For everyone who says our country is stupid for allowing cases like this- I point the mirror back at you and say your are idiotic for forming an opinion before any facts are presented.
The bottom line is that no one loves truly ridiculous (or ones that can be convoluted as ridiculous) lawsuits more than the large corporations. Then they can use those minuscule fractions of fractions of law suits as the drum they beat in public (i.e. Chamber of Commerce) while they have congress pass laws that take your rights away to a fair trial. Then the people vote because "they don't agree with that case", and the millions of legitimate cases suffer in the process. Congratulations America- the corporations win (who I support in most cases), and we, the people, lose. Yay.
