Law School Prof Looking To Challenge 'Hurt Locker' Lawsuits In Cases Of Weak Evidence
from the nice-to-see dept
However, as always in these mass lawsuit campaigns, the evidence is so weak that it often drags in many who are quite innocent of what they're accused of doing, and it seems rather unfair to make them either pay up, or pay lawyers to defend themselves. So it's neat to see that Robert Talbot, a law professor at University of San Francisco, is taking on a bunch of these cases (23 so far), with a focus on ones where it appears the accused did not, in fact, share the file. From the sound of it, Talbot (with the help of USF law students) have no intention of settling these cases, but are looking to fully defend the accused. My guess is that USCG will look to avoid any of those cases, and focus on the ones that are a bit more of a slam dunk.
