Apparently, Catherine Crier of CourtTV had a segment on Wanita Young and the cookie lawsuit tonight. Scott has left some very interesting comments regarding the lawsuit here. I greatly appreciate the comments, though I don't entirely agree. After reading Scott's perpective, I can see how this seemingly crazy lawsuit came to be, and how maybe Wanita isn't the world-class bitch I once thought; however, I disagree with Scott's assesment of the young girls delivering the cookies of kindness. I do not believe they had any malicious intent or were trying to be smart asses in any way. Maybe they didn't think things through as thoroughly as they should've. Maybe they used poor judgement. But if they just wanted to give this woman a scare, why go to the trouble of leaving cookies at the door? What's more, they baked the cookies themselves! I can't see this as any more than a random act of kindness goes horribly awry. It's sad that it went the way it did--though I suspect there are some lawyers to blame for that, or at least the legal system in they are forced to work.
Anyway, thanks again Scott for shedding some lawyerly wisdom on this incident.
