Shutuppery and Stupidity in the Courts


Suing seems to be easiest thing in the world.  I know nincompoops who have done it. Not successfully, but sometimes the process is the punishment.

DW.com:

A regional court in Germany on Thursday ruled that a Peruvian farmer’s lawsuit seeking damages for melting glaciers at his Andean home is unfounded. Those behind the lawsuit see the ruling as the start of a long fight.

He is suing a German energy company, which did not directly dispute that Global Climate Change™ is real. They argued that their huge company still contributes very little to warming. There are lots of other sources for CO2. 

USA Today:

SAN FRANCISCO — Facebook, Google and Twitter are being sued by the families of three victims slain in the mass shooting at an Orlando nightclub for allegedly providing “material support” to the Islamic State. – snip –

The lawsuit is the latest to target popular Internet services for making it too easy for the Islamic State to spread its message. In June, the family of a California college student killed in  last year’s terrorist attacks in Paris sued Facebook, Google and Twitter. Keith Altman, the attorney representing the three families in the Orlando nightclub lawsuit, also represents the family of that student, Nohemi Gonzalez, in the Paris terrorist attacks lawsuit.

Any idiot can file a lawsuit, and probably will.
