Walter Olson: "Great Moments In Blame-Shifting"
You could say that again. And again. And again. 21 times, in fact.
That's the number of neighborhood residents a coked-up ex-con's relatives are suing -- those residents who jointly maintain a private road.
The ex-con is now dead -- he tried to outrun the cops in a high-speed chase, and it didn't go well.
Per Walter Olson at Overlawyered:
He smashed his car into two trees on a one-lane dead-end private road, instantly killing himself and a passenger. Now the estate of his passenger (who was also on drugs) is suing 21 local residents who jointly maintain the private road, saying they should have kept it clear of trees and did not provide adequate signage.
What would adequate signage be, "Coked-up ex-cons on police chases should not drive at high speeds down this road"?
"Don't get in cars with coked-up assholes"?
