Ambulance Chasers On The Loose

I suppose I knew Eureka attorney, Jason Singleton, wasn't alone in his predatory legal tactics. We discussed here earlier how he'd go around and find businesses in minor non- compliance with the Americans with Disablities Act(?) and sue them, hoping for cash settlements.

The Sacramento Bee reports this morning on a similar tactic used by ambulance chaser types around the state: Suing businesses for not posting signs warning of even minor exposure to various chemicals. Good to see the Attorney General's office is starting to take a closer look at some of these cases.

At the beginning of the article, I thought I was going to have something to debate here. But I also disagree with the structure of the labelling laws - which is similar to the Disabilities Act in that you get nailed for attorney fees before you've even had a chance to correct the situation.

I know. The way they set these things up almost seems like a conspiracy of some kind?

I went to the hardware store the other day in the Atlanta area to buy a brass garden hose coupling and noted a label on it stating that it contained substances "known by the state of California to cause harm..." The item being made of brass contains a small amount of lead alloy. One never ceases to wonder at the idiotic actions of the "progressives". They are far reaching indeed.
