    Over the past 3 years, Bush has been quietly using federal agencies' rule-making powers to make it MUCH harder to sue companies that make dangerous or defective products or drugs.

    Anyone ever look at what Tort reforms did for Mississippi? They turned that's states economy around. Clearly, suing in this country has gotten out of control. People's rights clearly have to be protected, but suing over dry cleaned pants is a bit too far.

    As for the link, why is Qaid suing the drug company? He should be suing the people who gave their kids 1,000 times the recomended dosage. If I go to the hospital and the doc gives me 1,000 asprin, do I sue Bayer, or the doc?

    I agree with you , remember Roy Pearson, the DC judge who sued his dry cleaners for $54 million after they lost his pants !!!!!


    For Qaid situation , it is different see quote:

    That was a mistake from the Drug company , not the hospital.
    We have to be careful not to over protect big corporations now.
