Did you hear the latest?
It is reported that US Senator Dennis Kuchinich of Ohio is suing some companies because he bit into a sandwich that had an olive pit.
I think this happened at the Capitol Building, but I’m not sure.
The report said he’s asking for $150,000.00.
My initial reaction to this personal injury case is: Give me a break.
He better have some serious injuries to ask for that kind of money.
The injury law business gets enough bad press without our law-makers engaging in this kind of thing.
I don’t know the facts, so I reserve judgment.
But, I must admit, even as an injury lawyer, I am skeptical.
I’m concerned about hurting the image of a field that is already tarnished.
Then again, maybe the injury law business has been brought down so low by some of our own players that one more crazy-sounding case makes no difference.
