The scum of the legal world is in New Orleans trying to create the biggest class action lawsuit in history. They plan to get all of the home owners to sue the federal, state, and local governments and anyone else they can think of because the levies broke and flooded the city. This of course means that the lawyers will make millions and millions of dollars, while the home owners will get some money for their losses, but will then be part of the group known as – the citizens of the United States – that will end up picking up the multi-billion-dollar tab.
I think the lawyers for the defendants should counter-sue every member of the class with neglegence. Did they vote in every election that recommended a tax increase to improve the levies? If not, they are neglegent. If so, did they vote for the tax increase? If not, they are neglegent. Did they clear out their garage, under their cabinets, etc. to make sure that if the flood waters reached their property they would not be poluting the water with chemicals, medecines, etc? If not, they are neglegent. I’m sure that they could cover the entire class using this methodology, until everyone agreed to drop thier lawsuits.
