Pfft ... that is a stupid question my friend.

An average indian might earn just a tenth of the average american, however:
o the internet works the same there
o they are as smart as you
o they have similar education
o they have newspapers, too

I guess the name of the lawyer was published often enough in the news.
And also: smart lawyers contact YOU if they feel they can make a case and lots of money if they represent you in the USA.

"Rules" set up by a company where they like to be sued or to sue are usually void everywhere on the world.
A private person usually can only be sued at the place he is living (or the next best place if a "higher court" is needed) and a company usually can only be sued at the pace it is registered.
Otherwise every company would set up a clause in their "terms of business": 'please sue me in Usbecistan, where the judges do what I pay them for'.

However: the US does everything regarding law pretty weird and archaic.

Seems you did not pay attention the last 30 years?
Everyone sues everybody in the USA. The problem is the US courts "accept" such a case, or not. And usually for what ever reason they accept any case.
So I bet this case will be accepted as well. And as all the lawyers earn lots of money: in the USA! And tax it in the USA being the "court of the world" is making the US big money since a few decades.

Don't know about what used car program you are talking. I'm not an american ... writing half sentences implying something is likely not implying anything to any one.

Point is: capital is hard to destroy. It usually simply switches the owner ... if you don't agree write more coherent and comprehensive :D

the lawyer seeks out the victim

if you ever are the victim of a newsworthy accident/ crime, you will get cold called by a number of lawyers, who want to represent you pro bono

because such cases gild their CV, get their name out there. free advertising

some lawyers, they seek out interesting strange and noteworthy cases only. out of ego, fame, crank cause, adrenaline, hero complex, whatever:

yes, exactly

and that's exactly the next step with a weakened government: corporation owned armies abusing you with no recourse for your rights

oh, i'm making that up? it's science fiction?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/P...

By the early 1890s, the Pinkerton National Detective Agency employed more agents than there were members of the standing army of the United States of America.

During the labor strikes of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, businessmen hired the Pinkerton Agency to infiltrate unions, supply guards, keep strikers and suspected unionists out of factories, as well as recruiting goon squads to intimidate workers. One such confrontation was the Homestead Strike of 1892, in which Pinkerton agents were called in to reinforce the strikebreaking measures of industrialist Henry Clay Frick, acting on behalf of Andrew Carnegie.[citation needed] The ensuing battle between Pinkerton agents and striking workers led to the deaths of seven Pinkerton agents and nine steelworkers.[4] The Pinkertons were also used as guards in coal, iron, and lumber disputes in Illinois, Michigan, New York, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia as well as the Great Railroad Strike of 1877 and the Battle of Blair Mountain in 1921. The organization was pejoratively called the "Pinks" by its opponents.

now remember dick cheney and his adventure with blackwater

weaken the government and blackwater expands exponentially, and corporate goons are now stepping on your throat: "get back to work slave, i mean citizen. if you have a problem with our enforcement activities, please see the corporation owned courts, or attempt to fight our legion of well-funded lawyers when you can barely get enough to eat, because we've let 'the market decide' your salary"

you look around the world at kleptocracies, warlords, mafias... you really fucking believe government has a monopoly on force?

if there is no government army, it's not suddenly peace and happiness, it's fucking hell

where do you morons come from with your bullshit unexamined beliefs?

Sorry, you are jsut an idiot.
If someone claimed 30 years ago, we already had sea level risings of meters/yards today, he was an idiot, too.
If you believed that idiot, you are a doubke idiot.

All that changes nothing to the fact that everyone below the afe of 50 who is reaching a normal age will eye witness dramatic changes (in the next 30 years).

replace ... with healthy scientific skepticism and you might convince people like me.
How should I if I start becomming sceptic, convince an idiot like you?
Facts fon't comvince you, but if I step back from thise facts (being sceptic) you suddenly are convinced?
Why don't you simply learn about the facts instead of spreading your ideology?

What we can 'proof' is not really relevant.
Either you have common sense or not.
When Gallileo dropped his samples from the tower in Pisa, he was well aware he can not drop all kinds of combinations of materials to be certain that gravity works regardless of weight.
Would he have dropped a toddler to see if it falls slower/faster than lead, iron, stone?
I don't guess so. So according to your idea of science it is unproven if toddlers fall slower or faster or at the same rate than any other material.

I don't go into the rest of your argumentation, as it is all wrong.
