Just got back from LA. In 2004 I was riding with my friend in his Manx clone at the Hungry Valley off road area near Gorman CA. The car ended up rolling after hitting a large rut on the side of the road. The back seat passengers either jumped or were thrown out in the roll. She got a dislocated elbow, he had a broken arm. The driver (my friend) was uninjured, I had a crushed hand. (don't try to protect your head in a rollover. lol)
The back seaters sued for $250,000 EACH, claiming we weren't off roading. After 4 days of testimony and 1.5 days of deliberation, the jury decided we were off-roading in an off-roading designated area. What's the chances of that happening, especially in California!?!?!
So, it all worked out OK for my friend, except for his $35K attorney bill. Rolling Eyes

Yeah, that was his attorney's billing for his defense.

They were friends of a co-worker of ours at the time. We were all out camping & off roading for the weekend.

Frivolous lawuits....what a failure of our legal system. Everyone is sue-happy.

I say, if you sue for a ridiculous reason like that, if you lose, YOU pay what you were demanding. Better make damn sure you deserve it...

rant over.
