Frivolous lawsuit costs small business owner $300k in legal fees
Do frivolous lawsuits exist? Absolutely. And the best place to find them isn't in personal injury lawsuits, but in business v. business litigation. For example:
Luxury handbag maker Louis Vuitton claimed a Las Vegas company infringed on its trademark with furry "Chewy Vuiton" dog toys, but a federal appeals court refused to bite....
Pamela Reeder, co-owner of Haute Diggity Dog, said she was relieved by the outcome of the case, which has cost more than $300,000 in legal fees for the company that started in her guest bedroom in August 2004.
Groups like the American Tort Reform Association and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce don't like to talk about frivolous business litigation, because they receive millions of dollars per year in funding from the businesses who routinely file these frivolous business lawsuits.
