That's why I think there should be a insurance policy for legal expenses (LEI). Pay a monthly insurance fees and be protected against these kinds of legal shenanigans.
So the business that's as much as, or even more of, a gouging racket than the legal business should protect us from the latter?
Auto insurance company - Pay us $2000 a year and we'll cover your losses in case of an accident. Plus we leveraged our influence to make it against the law not to buy our product. And you can't get it cheaper, because we've all agreed it's in our best interest to screw you.
You - ummm....ok..here ya go.
You 20 years later....Ummm I totaled my car.
Company - Here's a cheque.... By the way, now your premiums are $4600 a year since you had a claim.
You - Umm....Shouldn't the $40,000 I've already given you for that have covered it?
Company - We spent it on executive bonuses. PS - Fuck you.
To the extent that you can, self-insure. Put $50 or $100 a month into a legal account earning interest. Never need it? You keep the money, AND the interest.--
