Textbook example of the need for lawsuit reform...
According to this AP story, a Los Angeles Superior Court jury has awarded a women 28 billion dollars in punitive damages against Philip Morris, Inc.
28 Billion!! Dollars!
This on top of the $750,000 she already got for "economic damages" and $100,000 for pain and suffering.
This is sickening. Yeah, We've Changed since September 11th.
