They pestered me with DS1 as well... told me of all the problems it can cause his wife if we didn't do it...

This is a tree on fire with love, but it's still scary since most people think love only looks like one thing instead of the whole world. *

Do you think they can really win a case of assault and battery? Do they have to go before a jury or just a judge? And it will probably be appealed if they do win, so it might take a while. I don't know enough about such things to know what kind of a chance they have.

But if they do win, that could really help. I mean, nobody can get insurance against an assault and battery lawsuit like you can against malpractice, right? So this could really scare a lot of doctors and hospitals out of doing circ's. It only takes one mistake, one unsigned consent form. Are the $ really worth the risk? I bet a bunch of them will think it's not.

Of course, that's assuming they can win this case. I really hope they can.

We have an Attorney or two around here perhaps if they have time they can shed some light on this.
