*shrug* It’s Ithaca.
and they would not otherwise have gotten a hold of some friends pills???, and then the “negligence” suit would have been against those friends for not locking up their pills??; or they could have gone to the hardware and bought some rope, and then the hardware would have been sued for selling the rope???, ect., ect., ect.,
we have a disease when the assumption is ALWAYS if something bad happens there is someone to be sued for it, it can NEVER simply be the “fault” of those involved themselves
So, the dead kid's lawyer dad wants $168m, does he?
He should lose and be required to reimburse the defendants for all costs.
But he FEEEEEEEELS so bad!
Grief is understandable. Coping with it by filing spurious lawsuits, not so much.
.........I’ve been down this road in Texas Courts. Meaning I was up against very influential people who literally own judges through long in place mechanisms that would take too long to discuss here.
But, this NY judge likely made this ruling (in my opinion) based upon favoritism to somebody who knew somebody that was close to this lawyer/daddy. We call it “the 19th hole” ruling. Sometimes we have an honest judge down here but we are known all over the world for our corrupt court system and judges. That’s point one.
Point two is that in Texas a large % of “summary judgments” are reversed on appeal. One reason that is true is that it was recognized long ago that “the system” simply could not be purged completely of the “good ole boy system” when individual courts and judges were involved. In truth, corruption is rampant. I predict this
ruling will be be reversed. I had one case at the Texas Supreme Court and they sat on it for 4 years until my billionaire defendant was able to buy em off without getting caught.
Don’t worry about proving anything either. That’s covered up by clever use of attorney client privilege and general corruption of the specific lawyers involved.

Not a complaint against you, sir.
I thought Gorging Out was an honored campus tradition.

There was a pedestrian suspension footbridge over the Fall Creek Gorge back in 1943 (built, I think, in 1913). My Dad led his Marine platoon over the bridge in lockstep (violating the rules, natch) and really got the bridge swaying. Of course, those Marines thought that was great fun. Sure glad he lived to tell me all about it.
