From the Institute for Legal Reform's FacesofLawsuitAbuse.org, I found this story of a pharmacy being forced to pay $1.4 million because a teenager was permanently injured after overdosing on Xanax stolen by a former pharmacy employee. While what happened to the teen is sad, pinning the blame on the pharmacy is equally so.
I hope the teen recuperates as much as is possible, but I also hope we get legal reform to prevent businesses like that pharmacy from being unfairly caught in the lawsuit abuse jetsam.
