Who can I sue?

Posted By on Wed, Aug 6, 2008 at 9:15 AM

Back in our first year of law school - occassionally my classmates would ask our professors, "Can you sue for that?"      My torts professor had a good stock answer - "You can sue anyone for anything."  He added that you might have no chance of winning, you might get a complaint to the ethics commission, and you might get hit with attorney's fees - but yes you can sue for that.

Now I see where there is a website that links attorneys with people looking to sue someone. WhocanIsue.com        It almost sounds like a joke - but it isn't.      Of course, it is really a money making scheme for the website because it costs the attorneys listed there $1000.00 a year - but one good case will make it all worth it.

Sounds like a bad idea to me - and will likely lead to more frivolous lawsuits. But, we have millions anyway - a few thousand more won't be noticed - except if you are the one being sued.

    The death penalty makes me nervous. It makes me nervous because there is always a chance the wrong person is being executed.

  • City ethics update; campaign limit was supposed to help the little guy

    Some more history on the Little Rock city ordinance that limits candidates for mayor and City Board to raising campaign funds to five months before the November 2018 election. It raises questions not only about Warwick Sabin's fund-raising tactics, but also Mayor Mark Stodola's carryover money.
