What's being said

  • This three-judge panel should be ashamed of itself, as should the CSPC for having let itself be wooed by the personal injury bar into creating this kangaroo court of a database to begin with. It is but a tool for parasitic plaintiffs‘ lawyers to bootstrap claims against upstanding companies based solely on anonymous website attacks. If there‘s no merit to the safety claims against Company Doe, what precisely is the public‘s interest in having its identity revealed? This is nothing more than Kafkaesque madness.
