Let me tell you this. A man menaces cops with a machete, and gets shot. He then sues the city for three million dollars, and the city just gives him $5000 to settle it. I understand that the city believes that it will cost more money in the long run going to court over this, and I won’t even dispute that. I just can not stand the premise this sets. How many people, having seen this, will now sue the city for all sorts of complete nonsense. I also don’t like it one bit on principle. alone. I am not sure what criteria must be met for a judge to throw a case out of court, but this sure sounds like one that should have been tossed! Any lawyers out there who can let us know what the criteria is for a judge to through out a case?
