Glad to see the 1920s Stylists are still out there.
No, unfortunately a lawsuit does NOT have to have merit to succeed. One of the biggest lawsuits State Farm Insurance LOST alleged that the use of aftermarket automobile body panels resulted in a loss to…I mean, their use compromised the safety, function and appearance of…Um. Well, they resulted in the car not having OEM body panels and so the owners must have lost out somehow.
Millions and millions of $$$ in class action lawsuit, and none of the plaintiffs suffered ANY kind of loss whatsoever. Until aftermarket body panels couldn’t be used for fear of further lawsuits so the OEM manufacturers had a monopoly and cranked their prices WAY up resulting in MUCH higher repair costs and therefore higher insurance premiums
I think these death ray parents have a pretty good chance of winning. And I hope they’ve considered the nature of the demon they’ve climbed into bed with.
