No Wonder Everyone Hates Landlords.
http://www.rawstory.com/2015/07/nyc-land...ge-anyway/


Quote:NYC landlord tries to reduce damages payment by saying Latino toddler wouldn’t go to college anyway

Quote:A federal judge rejected a Brooklyn landlord’s attempt to use a Latino child’s ethnicity to justify reducing his liability in a lead poisoning case, the reported.

Mark Kimpson’s attorney sought to reduce the $2 million awarded to the boy and his mother by a jury earlier this month, saying the child was less likely to attend college and earn a degree even if he had not been stricken by lead poisoning while living in the family’s Bedford-Stuyvesant apartment. Elevated levels of blood were found in his blood just after his first birthday.

Slimebag.

That is not exactly a rare issue in the world of lawsuits.  For instance; flight 191 (downburst, water tanks not suburban Chicago trailer park) had a gay man on board and as I recall, the airlines attorneys argued he would have succumbed to AIDS and therefore the award for his death should be reduced.

 The granting of a pardon is an imputation of guilt, and the acceptance a confession of it.

Remember, if there was only one original replicator, then we're all exactly equally evolved.
There is no hierarchy of life.  It's more of a flat file.

But you're right.
So how, exactly, does God know that She's NOT a brain in a vat? Huh

Poetically and in my intuitive gut, I'll grant you that.
But in the sense that evolution has no preferred complexity or teleology, I'll stand on my, "We're all equally evolved," statement.

I'd like to see the scumbag have to make that argument - to a jury, before damages are awarded.

Don't blame them, American lawyers are just a product of your craptastically deranged legal system.
The fool hath said in his heart, There is a God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.

They are the product of the platinum rule:

He who makes the rules, wins.

and its corollary:

They'd be damn fools if they didn't.
