Easy method to cut down frivolous suits by 90%....

The plaintiff should be required to pay defendants legal costs if the defendant wins in court.

I believe UK and other countries follow this rule.

No, because the plaintiff will generally have no assets and his lawyer will be on commission.

Have the plaintiff's LAWYER be required to pay the legal fees, with his license getting suspended if he doesn't pay within 30 days.
