Wanting to post this earlier, but busy at work.

An article in USA Today talks about how so many lawsuits have been filed against the government in Katrina-related claims. This is my fav:

One claim alone seeks $3 quadrillion in damages, almost all of it for personal injury. That's a 3 followed by 15 zeros — about 250 times the nation's gross domestic product. A resident of a section of New Orleans that includes the hard-hit Lower 9th Ward filed another claim for $6 trillion, double the annual federal budget.

What attorney in his or her right mind would ever file that?

UPDATE: The Times-Pic has more. Joe Bruno sounds brilliant as always. Maybe he filed that suit, seeing as it is too big for state court where he is barred.
