No question there are too many lawyers chasing too few legitimate legal disputes.<quoted text>
School officials go overboard because they get sued if they miss something. They can't win either because as a society we are too litigious. People used to accept that sometimes awful things happen. But that was before every ambulance chaser was out there to convince you that you could blame ANYTHING on someone else.
My favorite is the law office that promises to get you money EVEN IF YOU WERE AT FAULT!****?!?!?
But a school district can still create solid, sound policies that protect everyone involved yet are tempered by some common sense.
We regularly read about a district that turns a simple incident into a major news item, all because it lacked the common sense to do otherwise.
