Loser pays

All those handmaidens of power who want to codify loser pays as a principle of American legal process should consider this travesty, where serial process abusers now stand to collect from the family of one of the soldiers whose funerals they desecrated.

The Westboro Baptist Phelpses intentionally provoke people in the hope of finding a cause of action so that they can finance their ugliness off the anger of their targets. Often, they're Constitutionally protected, but that doesn't change how despicable they are.
