As you are undoubtedly aware, a $54 million lawsuit was recently brought in DC District Court against a small neighborhood drycleaners over a pair of alleged lost trousers. While the Court found resoundingly in favor of the business owners, Jin and Soo Chung, their ordeal is not yet over—they have drained their saving accounts contesting this frivolous lawsuit, and they have racked up over $100,000 in legal expenses.

In order to help the Chungs defray their legal bills, ILR and the American Tort Reform Association are co-hosting a fundraiser on Tuesday evening, July 24 at 6 p.m. at the US Chamber Building in Washington, DC. Unfortunately, businesses large and small across America must deal every day with similar extortionist tactics from some plaintiffs’ lawyers. The collective outcome is not justice, but lost jobs, ruined businesses and billions of dollars in lost economic opportunity. Additional details, sponsorship opportunities and easy online registration are available at www.chungfundraiser.com.

This is hilarious.

I am currently suing Mountain Dew for false advertising. Unless mountains bleed piss-colored sugar water, I'll be rich.

Now. Now! I'm from Virginia. The motto isn't specific what kind of lover or the object of one's affection. Of course there is a 'virgin' in Virginia - one couldn't spell the name of the state otherwise!

I'm after any claim against, 'World's Best' or 'gourmet'!

What a great article! The "Slow Children" signs have always confounded me.



LOL. Our court system never ceases to amaze me.
