One of the major gripes people have with lawyers is that lawyers sue just for fun. While I strongly disagree with that characterization, reading about a lawyer that sued another lawyer for defamation because of what was written about him on that lawyer's blog is ridiculous. For one, freedom of speech is screaming here!!! You can't sue me because I express my opinion (unless I am making a statement of fact that I know to be wrong--FACT is the keyword here). An opinion is just that, an opinion. Nothing more or less.
Apparently there is a shortage of work for this law firm. I guess when clients are hard ot come by, you become your own client. Really people, grow up!
