[APD] Re: The Stella Awards

The woman who won that huge verdict against MacDonald's saw the punitive
damages reduced by about 70% on appeal.  These reductions are rarely
reported in the popular press.  It can be argued that Mac served coffee that
was just too hot.

The fat guy whose lawyer sued the fast food restaurants saw his suit thrown
out of court.

Many if not most suits of this kind have the punitive damages reduced
substantially on appeal.

If we become afraid to express our opinions because of possible lawsuits or
for other reasons, our form of government will evolve into some less
wonderful than it is.
