Judge Not, Lest Ye Be Judged

That putz judge who is suing a mom and pop Korean dry cleaner for millions just because they lost his pants should be the new poster boy for tort reform. This is clearly out of hand. This would not happen in Britain.

...or maybe the putz's lawyer should be the poster child for legal ethics reform. Tort reform really doesn't reform much. Placing limits on the amount a successful plaintiff can recover for punitive damages does not change the number of lawsuits filed. And it doesn't help people that have been severely damaged from making a just recovery for their injuries. It protects large corporations from having to pay judgments that would be punishing (the whole point behind punitive damages). That lawyer should be sanctioned and disbarred.
