a billion dollars and that glorius "class action" lawsuit. While I think what they did was pretty lame, I hope the judge tosses this one out on day one.

FWIW- A caller on a local radio show said that an MTV produced halftime show was kind of like inviting a heavy metal band to play at a senior citizens home...it just doesn't fit.

Frivolous lawsuits like this are why tort reform is needed so badly including "loser pays". This way if those bringing the suit lose the case, they pay the court costs for both sides. That would definitely discourage meritless lawsuits.

I wasn't for the stunt Jackson pulled, but for Christ sake, it wasn't on long enough for anyone to get permanant physical or psychological scars over.

I'd countersue this woman for filing a suit without merit, if I were those named in the original one. What a bunch of baloney.

But some idiot judge, egged on by some idiot lawyer, willl get the suit heard. That's the American Way.

As a big Pats fan I taped the game. I went back to review the tape. The camera shot is from so far back when the "malfunction" occurs you have a hard time figuring out what happened. What went out on the CBS feed is no big deal at all, it was no class and totally inappropriate, but damaging, please....

I think people are blowing this out of proportions. :/
Americans should worry more about guns in their home... really... not about some entertainer's boob on tv (which was most likely an accident). I'm sure kids weren't that traumatized.

I'm glad most of you folks from the other side of the pond look at it the way we do over here. So yes, it didn't fit. Great, what's the deal? There are always things that "dont fit"! People better live with that, like it or not; you can't sue everyone.

Besides that, I can't help but chuckle every time I hear about this great example of American "moralism"...  Big grin

See Alpha, we do agree on some things lol. Yes we've gotten wayy too sue-happy here in America. That's why I say we should have a panel of judges that quickly reviews lawsuits before they bother the actual justice system. WE HAVE MORE IMPORTANT THINGS TO DO THAN LISTEN TO PEOPLE WHINE ABOUT JANET'S BOOB OR HOW MCDONALDS MADE THEM FAT!

No, actually, law is very good profession to be in...
It pays extremely well for those that have the initiative...myslef included.
It's definitely recession proof...(in fact better in a worsening economy).
There is never an end to clients--corporate or private.
I've never gotten one dime from a company that didn't deserve to pay it.

Why in the world would I find that the least bit embarrassing?????

Sure, if you have no morals, no consience, and don't mind screwing people over who don't deserve it. It's a wonderful profession, then.

Bullshit. I don't believe that for one second.

I love how you lump every single lawyer out there into the 'ball washing bastards' catagory. I'm willing to bet that there are some out there that take their profession seriously and do it with integrity.

Bullshit. I don't believe that for one second.

I totally agree here though.  Big grin

No, that would hurt the economy too much.

Economic growth was shown to be inversly related to the population of lawyers in a given society. The actual numbers given by Samar K. Datta nd Jeffery B. Nugent in thier paper "Adversarial Activities and Per Capita Income Growth" that was published in in World Development vol 14 #12 in 1986 was that a economic grown reduction of 4.76 to 3.68% for each % of the work force that are lawyers occured.

While most of the settlements I have been awarded have been through arbitration...the largest have all been jury awarded.

It is hard to say that these were not deserved if so decided by these groups of individuals. Surely, you have been on a jury before?

Or are you trying to apply that the entire system is flawed.

In which case, please come up with a better one.

Better system

1) Shoot all civil trial lawyers and attorneys
2) Pass a law which would make TV and internet polls legally binding -- ala Kent Brockman's Proposition 304

I was offended by his first comment on this thread, which was deleted, but not to the point for calling for a ban.

I didn't even suggest deletion of his post.

Did you ever see "The Client" remember what Travolta said, a trial is a failure of the system.

These people are just opportunists who want to make a quick buck. I'd expect this case to be thrown out the moment it reaches the courtroom.

I think the broadcasters must be taught a lesson. The content of general broadcast radio and TV has spiralled out of control.

Its a crapshoot these days to decide whether the show you are sitting down and watching for your family is appropriate for those in attendance.

The very young tend to mimic what they see on TV. The message must be made very clear that it is generally inappropriate to expose your breasts in public.

We live in a world where Bugs Bunny cartoons are still censored while bloody body-dismembering violence is acceptable on the Simpsons at 5PM.

Much Canadian broadcasting has nudity and coarse language. Arguably much more of it and often during prime time. The difference is the context in which it is presented. American programming tends to be of the "shock" variety whereas Canadian programming keeps things in a much more subtle context.

Whatever happens, I hope Janet, her boob and Justin understand how inappropriate their actions were. Of course as far as they ar concerned there is no "bad" publicity, so the only way they learn is through the pocket-book.
