Well, knock me over with a feather. It's simply hard to believe that anyone would compromise their public integrity for a lousy $162 million.

She had no public integrity to compromise. I mean, this is not a case of a person who has been honorable in all things, but was corrupted when this stakes were that high. This was low-life dirtbag.

Remember the lady who got news coverage for being trampled by the crowds at Wal-Mart. She appears to be a professional victim and were it not for some snoopy reported, Wal-Mart might well have paid out some small amount after she filed the inevitable nuisance lawsuit.

The cynical plaintiffs' lawyers who facilitate these people (and sometimes even put them up to it) are the most culpable.

It's not like any individual juror gets the full picture, and the judges and defense lawyers can't tell the jury just how scummy the plaintiffs are, so it is the plaintiffs' lawyers who are at fault for this extortion.
