Alex's Outlook

Wednesday, June 04, 2003

Trial lawyers got out of control a long time ago, but nobody I know has tempted the naked greed of the tort bar--until now. My aunt, Anne Schlafly, owns a retail store that had the misfortune of selling some dragees (tiny balls used on wedding cakes that supposedly contain trace amounts of silver). She was just named in a California class-action lawsuit suing everyone who has sold silver dragees to California. Ms. Schlafly tracked down the silver dragees she sold and found that none had actually been sold to California, so she called up the lawyer suing her and requested to be removed from his hit list. Sure, he said, for $500.
