Just because people died doesn't mean they rest of the family can get away with or do things and not be held accountable for it.
Suing the burger joint is wrong even if the virgin mary died there.

Maybe the burger joint should give the kid a few free burgers?

If you read my posts - I have not offered an opinion on whether or not the family should sue. I have said that is their business. My issue is with how these posts crack jokes at a son and his dead parents. Calling them white trash, saying its the mothers fault for not cooking, etc, How is that appropriate? Have an opinion but be respectful. That's what I am talking about!

Its their business if they want to sue the person responsible, but it not their business if they want to sue someone not responsible. Its a joke that they are suing the burger joint, they made it into a joke. Yet we can't joke, only they can?

They are not personally attacking you and your character. Why do you think it's okay to make personal attacks? Does it personally affect you? Like it or not - this is America. They are pursuing an action that is available to them. Let the court system decide if the suit has merit.

They're attack the character of the burger joint aren't they?
What did the burger joint do?

This is in fact America, so we here on topix are free to say what ever we want, just like you friend can try to sue a burger joint for a car accident.
Ok, I'll let the court decide, but that doesn't stop us from deciding before that.
Why don't you let topix decide if are jokes are ok or not??

In order for Topix to decide it has to be reported. I won't report it because I don't feel censoring is right either. Go ahead and talk trash about the dead if that makes you feel better. I guess it's too much to ask that people be respectful on their posts. Have a nice day!

I'm gonna sue Cheeburger Cheeburger for not protecting me enough from the Cholesterol, High Blood pressure and putting on fat and weight by eating at their establishment.

I'm gonna sue China too, for making so many crappy goods and taking US jobs.

I'm going to sue mexico for preventing their citizens from coming here and working on farms. I'd sue the farms since farmers higher them, but mexico has more money than the farmers do.

You're on a forum where no one here uses thier real name ... not even you, and they make comments that incite.

It's the nature of the beast ... you knew it was a snake when you picked it up.

Crap. Now I'm going to sue the school district that hired the teacher that taught me how to spell since I put "higher" instead of "hire". It's obviously the schools fault and not the teachers.

I blame your parents for not being over your shoulder to make sure you did you homework diligently (at least that's how it is in the RCSD)

This kind of reminds me of the story of the woman who spilled coffee on herself at McDonalds and then sued them and won. I thought this was the most frivolous lawsuit ever and I was enraged that she won. Eventually, I read the facts of the case along with some very compelling evidence. It turns out that that particular McDonalds had rigged the coffee machine against standards so that the coffee was much hotter for much longer so that they wouldn't have to throw any out. Because of the increased temp of the coffee the woman received much more severe burns instantaneously. The burns would not have occurred at that degree of severity and would have taken more time of contact with the hot liquid to occur at all if the coffee was normal temperature. Bottom line, wait for the facts.
Watch the documentary " Hot Coffee ". Big business won in the long run.

I would do the same thing except lawsuits would be aimed at the driver, the diner, and the city.

There is a 13 year old without parents. They lawyer is going to sue where ever he thinks he can win the most. It isn't like the 13 year old is money grubbing but I'd imagine a few hundred thousand dollars could really help him out getting established in life.

I really don't see how it is the restaurant's fault. It seems like it would be the fault of the lady driving the car. However I can see how the lawyer would sue where it would make the most good for the boy. The restaurant has insurance and the settlement will probably be a drop in the bucket.
