Has anyone contacted these people to find out why Sue's crap is still up but Carey's was removed?

http://www.abovethelaw.com/2006/10/writ ... eopl.phpWe agree. Eleven million dollars? You can call us whatever you like for that kind of money.

Granted, the defendant -- Carey Bock, a Hurricane Katrine victim who couldn't afford a lawyer -- lost on the issue of liability because she never showed up for trial. But a jury did consider the issue of damages, before deciding to award plaintiff Sue Scheff this staggering sum.

Eleven-point-three million? Most wrongful-death awards that are smaller than that. And it's not like Scheff is some movie star who can no longer command $10 million a picture because someone called her a child molester on a blog. She's just a small business owner whose ex-client said some negative things about her on a random website. Jeez.

eople, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone. Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of each of your arms.  As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands; one for helping yourself, and the other for helping others. -Audrey Hepburn
