An interesting discussion on “loser pays”. For all the talk of reducing lawsuits I have to ask two questions that I have not found an answer to?

  1. What is the definition of a frivolous lawsuit? Is this in the eye of the beholder?
  2. What percentage of all lawsuits are frivolous? If this is a small amount than why would we want to make it harder for the middle class to protect themselves?
