Jeff Taylor, in a post on Reason Magazine’s new blog, finds a piece of delicious irony:
- So 60 Minutes does a story on Mississippi juries sticking big civil awards on big out-of-state companies in perverse rounds of “jackpot justice.”
So what do the jurors mentioned on the broadcast do? Sue the TV show for $6 billion. That’s $597 million in actual damages and $5.9 billion in punitive damages for their defamation.
Yep, that sure proves Morley and friends were wrong.
