It's a conspiracy
Here's how it works.
1. Exploit current previous BS weakness - cell phones and cancer link. That's kinda the same right? Let's repaint it.
2. Attorneys hire grassroot organizations to bring up non-sense bull to cause trouble.
3. Attack schools, public places, and other places with people.
4. Lawyer up (both sides).
5. Win or lose lawyers win. Really it doesn't matter win or lose since it's non sense... the lawyers get paid regardless.

Over here, you scenario has become the norm. However, other English countries do not have the same legal rules as we do.
For starters, one cannot just sue anyone abroad and if the legal system does allow a case to proceed and they loose, then they are automatically forced to pay all of their legal costs.
