Too bad governments don't have the political willpower/resources to compete against the law teams of big buisness.
You have to remember that law firms ARE big business.
Trial law firms especially.
It is a huge industry.
And they will try to protect their profits just like any other business will try to.
The issue is that law firms don't really produce a product for society.
They are in the business of moving money from other people they sue, into their balance books.
If corporate crimes were really crimes, and those who do them criminals, they should go to prison.
Sure corporations should pay for their victims losses, if they are real. Medical expenses, lost income, etc.
But why does an individual plaintiff(even if a group), be responsible for personally punishing other people.
Be allowed to, even. Especially when it has been shown that that punishment does not change behavior. Punishment should be a reserved right and responsibility for government. If a person did something to harm you, and you went over and "punished" him for it, you would go to jail. If your neighbor came over to your home, and poured Roundup on your grass. And you went over to punish him yourself for doing that, YOU would go to jail. It is not YOUR job to punish him.
McDonald still serves hot coffee now. They have a label on the cup, "HOT COFFEE", that they have to print on the cup for retards.
The behavior did not change. Stella Leibeck was a retard, she got rich, her lawyers got rich. The only change was the labeling of the cup, and the cost of coffee went up.
McDonald's doesn't care, they just pass the cost to the consumer.
You pay, you are punished. Not McDonalds under the present system.
And greasy lawyers get fat and wealthy off of your money, for producing NOTHING.
