Lawyers Pleased with Possibilities of “Reflexive Damages”

DULUTH, MN -- After the arrest of a man in Minnesota recently for trespassing on his own land, lawyers quickly decided the next step was to see if the man was interested in suing himself for damages.  Personal injury lawyer Ernest Blech III had this to say, “We feel deeply for this man and hope juries will, too.  He is entitled to remuneration because of the property destruction and psychological damage he has inflicted on himself.”

The case will be watched closely by the The American Association for Justice (AAJ), formerly the Association of Trial Lawyers of America (ATLA), which considers this a promising new area of litigation.
