Caterpillar sued the Walt Disney company for portraying bulldozers in a bad light. The well known heavy machinery company tried to block the release of “George of the Jungle 2,” claiming that the film gave the company a bad name because its machines are used to attack the jungle.
Thankfully, a judge eventually found that “even the most credulous viewer” would understand that the people operating the machinery, and not the machinery itself, intended to destroy the jungle.
This is yet another example of corporations holding-up our court system with frivolous lawsuits. The American public needs to realize that big corporations waste more time and money on frivolous litigation than any other group in America.
The only reason that reforming these corporations’ frivolous litigation practices is not being considered by congress is because big business is the unofficial sponsor of ‘lawsuit abuse week’ and of similar propaganda aimed at limiting the ability of injured individuals to hold big corporations accountable.
