Here's a good post with a lot of good links. Just how ridiculous can we be in assigning responsibility for the foolish actions of ONE PERSON?
This crap is exactly why lawyers want the most ignorant, uneducated, brain-dead people they can find to put on a jury. A stupid jury ASSUMES that it assembled to hand out a shitpot full of money to somebody before the trial even starts. I HAVE SEEN THIS KIND OF THINKING!!! These cretins think they're running a social insurance program, not trying a case.
And do you notice how the winning lawyer, after he is rewarded his multi-million-dollar verdict, always says that "we hope we sent a lesson here?" Oh, you sent a lesson, all right. It's not a GOOD lesson and it's not the RIGHT lesson, but you damn sure sent it.
All jury awards are free money. Nobody pays for it. If some drunk bastard kills someone in a car wreck, he didn't do it. The car manufacturer, the beer maker, the beer vendor and anybody else even remotely connected with the beer is guilty. Any fool can see that fact clearly.
That's why lawyers LOVE fools on juries.
