Today's Daily Elysium has to do with a long tradition of frivolous lawsuits. So, I pose the question, has Western culture become to litigious, and should we do something about it?
What about proposed caps on malpractice suits? Should the woman here in Minnesota who was recently diagnosed with cancer, had a radical double mastectomy, and then was informed that they'd mistaken her information for another women, and she did not, in fact, have cancer, be capped at what she can sue for? Or has the wanton litigation made it necessary to protect professionals and businesses from these kinds of stupid lawsuits, even at the expense of valid claims?
