    Protection from frivolous lawsuits and crooked lawyers is a good thing.

    3 years on, these people are in the "how can I profit from my child's death?" stage of grief. Arseholes.
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    I'm sure the ambulance-chasers have persuaded them that they are somehow honoring their deceased children's memories and somehow protecting other children.

    This country needs massive tort reform, the type where you sue and lose you pay the court costs to those you sue. The type where damages are capped to reasonable levels and where lawsuits like this get tossed on principle.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    She paid with her life but that does not seem to be enough for those that see fairness as sharing her estate with themselves and their lawyers. Few would be of similar mind if a "deranged" criminal (related or not) had stolen their gun, chainsaw or car and then used it to kill other folks.

    From the cynical perspective, this course of action attempts to corroborate that the SH story is true and accurate.

    If it turns out that Wolfgang Halbit's law suit sees the light of day, things will change mightily. If it turns out that those photos were actually staged, and that the school had not been in service for years, there will be lots of 'splainin to do.

    I am going to go out on a limb here and guess that you oppose this same sort 'warning' when it comes to capital punishment. THAT somehow isn't a deterrent but a lawsuit is...

    That would depend on if the car was used for the purpose it was manufactured for.
