    Her parents are sueing Caterpillar - because

    http://www.komotv.com/stories/35754.htm

    ""We believe Caterpillar...must be held accountable for their role in the attack."


    Their Attorney - (May she rot in hell, or find a new profession - she's morally bankrupt for participating)

    "Caterpillar knew that its equipment was being used to commit human rights violations, knew that Rachel Corrie and other civilians were foreseeable victims of these human rights violations, and even with that knowledge ... they continued to supply that equipment"

    lets hope this lawyer and her clients get the $6000 fine for a frivolous lawsuit that the other lawyer did.

    Hear hear!

    This should be in the encyclopedia as the quintessential frivolous lawsuit.

    I don't believe this!

    Has this lawyer ever heard of the assumption of risk doctrine? Hey, its first year lawschool stuff, read it again.

    This is like suing a ski resort for your injuries simply because the ski resort provided you (like providing cats to isreal) with a venue to ski. Guess what, you lose, you assumed the risk of an inherently dangerous activity like skiing(going to palestine in the first place, then doing the utterly intelligent thing of standing in front of a bulldozer in a warzone).

    really gross, but on topic of what transpired:

    I think the judges may be European. Need at least a German judge. I mean an Aryan judge.

    No. Really if they can overcome the assumed openmindedness of the world court, they really should have to come before the skinheads.
