    the Daily Show?

    We actually talked about this case in a Media Law class. The instructor described Sandy as a "decrepit old stripper".

    I was wondering what could get you to willingly have sex with Sandy Kane.

    Then she'd sue you for sexual harassment. I guess O&A were lucky this latest one didn't get dragged all the way to the Second Circuit. Litigious cunt.

    By "Media Law class", you mean "Yahoo Chat Room", right?

    Don't knock Yahoo chat. Where else can you discuss Late Night with Conan O'Brien, Gideon's Crossing, Frasier, Friends, Providence, and ER?

    No, I mean Media Law class. It helps to know fair use guidelines and how to avoid libel lawsuits.

    What gets me is that she can still sue O&A because the lawsuit was dismissed without prejudice...

    Maybe she should sue Twatto next, finally get rid of that nasty thing.

    That would be awkward when neither of them would bother to show up for court.

    Now that I know about the Daily Show suit, I'm going to guess that she can't find a lawyer to represent her on a contingency basis for the O&A suit. That's why she's not showing up for court. If she can somehow talk some ambulance chasing scumbag into taking her case with no money up front, she'll file again.

    Its not worth it. Small claims court caps the maximum award at $5,000, sooo best case scenario some scumbag lawyer like me would only make 1/3 of 5k in a contingency arangement, roughly $1,700, but half the time in small claims lawsuits you never get paid and wind up with some useless judgment.

    More realistically some soft hearted liberal judge or arbitrator might feel bad for the hideous old wench and give her twenty bucks for a new hat but there is no way in hell she is getting $5k.

    I didn't think small claims allowed lawyers?

    They're allowed in any court. Just not practical to hire one for small claims. I don't know the specifics of this case, but I can't picture Sandy Kane putting any kind of legal papers together without help, even if it is a fill in the blanks small claims form.

    I don't know how it works in other states but in NYC there are no "legal papers" you just go to the small claims window at the courthouse, and fill out a little card with the name of the person you are suing, and where they live, and one or two lines about what the lawsuit is about and they just mail it out.

    Half of the people at smalls claims court are insane. It is lots of people suing dry cleaners for staining their shirt or people suing their roommate for the 50 bucks they owe for the cable bill.

    Most states it's a one page form. Not much more involved than what you've described. I still maintain that Sandy Kane couldn't do it on her own. She's a retard.

    Those sound like legitimate cases for small claims court.
