Listen -- say no suit no way wide number one can't see your employer number till governmental immunity is usually employ because of the fact.
At that if that government absolutely -- -- -- government does this immunity that attaches and as a result often this lawsuit is going nowhere furthermore.
It's based on fact that's.
Itself that's the -- the truth is the absolute defense and a lord of these it is this tape was doctored in some way and then him putting -- -- the -- reputation that's one thing but that's the truth number one number two he doesn't on the tape.
The government on the good.
Nobody really pays damages.
If they don't.
What these -- video but but the fact that this shouldn't school isn't the public school and again.
Cell phone that all of that -- different that's -- -- diplomat at a whole different can't -- I could have been hard find what he shines it's yeah he's -- -- -- -- -- him let's look at the number of more.

Guys what's the deal with this lawsuit.
-- Q -- she -- alleging intentional infliction of emotional distress this abandoned that it's got to be.
Conduct that according I think -- out.
I'm not a prime time radio -- got millions of lives there's.
I don't think that it and then she and then -- -- -- up to be so severe to prove that this aspect of a lawsuit is viable it's absolutely not.
I -- got a point listen.
What ever you say something as a matter of law and name calling is not something that rises to intentional infliction of emotional distress all the names -- the calls made.
I never got a lawsuit as a result of that.
But she may have a claim based upon malicious prosecution and also -- That's and that that's an automatic handguns then it.
The -- -- -- tight but we have a statement from Rush Limbaugh he says.
This woman doesn't know how lucky she is that good -- great opportunity she had -- tell -- that -- magnet person that -- OK but at the squad -- that was cut and insisting that we -- Breslin bought anyway.
So we go -- numbers authority of the most outrageous lawsuits.
Here -- 290.
Pound man Susan white -- over discrimination.
Why do you think you can't fit in the -- OK guys yes well.
Do you guys -- disabilities act.
Would you what he's suing other open -- same people who are overweight and not necessarily covered it needs the -- fact specific scenario so this one is.
Actually right on the edge he actually might have a -- of -- I'm -- -- is look at the -- about the benefit of the doubt that getting off the day events opt out where a left go right I'm gonna say he absolutely had to suit why predicated on two things obesity obesity is recognized under the 88 right disabilities arrogance would -- have -- -- -- rightly it's recognized as a disability as a result you have to provide a reasonable accommodation and be accessibility they did neither but damn cool are all these on their website -- overweighted in itself that.
It is about -- not just not a cat but -- -- saving us gays and as a result and people we hamburgers -- like they -- and I get -- Canceled changeable so they admitted his -- and by the way they gave made free amber heard complaint was don't -- the he might not -- studio.
Tried to take a drive through next time that we want to have a problem but I do feel bad for in my early do we restaurant he should be able to -- get high -- you're worried about.
I'm hungry mom get -- I'll buy it why you know why have a bunch of fly white -- -- only covered one size they don't when you've already had an opening.
That they exit the larger ones I -- well that's up.
All right we're gonna move on at number two.
And 89 year old man's car is stolen and crashed.
-- would -- passengers and the owner of the stolen car for injuries sustained in the accident.
All right -- but do these guys have a cause of action.
-- -- -- here's why a couple of reasons number one in the event that he steals -- caught your -- you are fine why does it immunity that attack did you did not give commit and you did not give it the hard days after a while you rest easy that I got -- -- drove a car with a handyman and -- -- had permitted now civilian.
When -- we've got to do with because it's not the defendant who stole the car -- suing it's the passengers.
It got to do Whitman did they what they have a reasonable belief that he was allowed that he did affirmation of the guard now.
It -- a screwdriver -- out of the -- they they believe that but but he's got he's yelling.
And the -- these don't believe enough.
And yeah we're like let's not exactly right assumption of risk represented the -- you know the -- I'll -- you could at home something's gonna happen now.
That's all around yeah.
But our brand birdie at for the 89 year old man hardly anyone that you're -- it wasn't like all what's the classic at this point and I'll get ready.
The bad you almost -- -- -- when he got a lawsuit bad.
-- suing may be alive and well in the live to over a hundred years old man now.
All right and now for the number one most ridiculous lawsuit that they eleven as voted on by our -- loyal viewers.
Fugitive breaks into -- couple's home -- takes them hostage.
There at knife point and so they agree to hide him.
Quite work out the way he hopes he also sleep better right now call the police and -- -- Being that guy you help them at night point -- -- for breach of contract.
This is ridiculous.
I was at the dobbs right -- like you voted gonna vote I said this is the most ridiculous.
One of all them he's basically on the contract offer acceptance consideration like what we learned the -- they have lost to a good.
Yeah what a hit this one defense that might might legal -- -- brought to my attention -- real.
It's called unconscionable the I don't -- you -- never works is the pledge except here we go about god give millions if the contract is so horrible it shocks the conscience.
The -- wanna kill me you.
Let me I don't -- house.
Now the -- shoot mega judging Aurilia what you -- I have -- -- even off I'd allies not going to proclaim victory on this one here's the point the point is that they will never prevail you mentioned one number one is the rest it up my that the rest if somebody pervert.
I really -- that gonna kill me so it's a sign that you silence us as a result of that it's not gonna be enforceable why else consideration something or something right out of welcome great value at the radar but no value no contract last one and that is that it's a contract to engage in legal act is it a legal but -- still.
Part of the story you're both right and nine different grounds but this artist but not until we get on the ground and that accidentally -- seven.
So he -- -- and I didn't -- that but -- the by the -- -- married seven days and someone breaks into their health isn't the couple put a shot for the -- shooting him in the back.
You know you're out of the question.
I really could -- you know these cases are usually take our continued -- bases means the lawyer only makes money if he wins.
