    True, and even if they paid out, theyre paying you with your own money.

    I'd have no issue with that. If it were me, I mean.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    That was my point in an earlier post. A lot of people do things knowing it is too expensive to get sued. I am sure the government knows the same, plus they can sick the IRS on you and your family.

    Plus, the government already has attorneys at their disposal. Just throw another one (lawsuit) into the hopper.
