It's lawsuits like this one that really tick me off and blacken the eye of legitimate, deserving lawsuits. Apparently some basement dwelling video couch potato from Hawaii has sued a video game company, claiming that he has played 20,000 hours of a video game over 5 years, leaving him unable to function.
Give me a break. How about this for some advice: drop your frivolous lawsuit, get a job, read a book, volunteer your time in your local community, or learn to surf like thousands of other Hawaiians! My prediction is that this lawsuit will go nowhere. Unfortunately, the damage from this goofball lawsuit has already been done. It's already hit the media, and no doubt groups like The Chamber Of Commerce will parade it front and center as another poster child for what is wrong with our legal system. As much as The Chamber distorts the true realities of our legal system, I will agree with them that this lawsuit is a loser.
More than anything else, it's a slap in the face to those folks who are legitimately harmed and have no choice but to access the legal system to make wrongdoers accountable.
It proves the adage that a few bad apples can spoil the whole bunch.....
