Does the phrase "mailicious prosecution" and the concept of "disbarrment" sound relevant?
There are people who use the threat of suits as a business tool, and sadly a number of attorneys (I don't know this one or infer anything about him/her) who go along with the process. When a court can be sure the purpose of the suit was improper--they sometimes get disbarred.
Meanwhile, you can still be out the cost of hiring your own attorney and traveling to the court where the process has been brought. Personally, I think disemboweling would be more fitting than disbarrment. If nothing else, it would sell primetime on FOX.
If a guy had to REDO a job...I would think that was prima facie evidence that there was something less than satisfactory about the way it was done the first time 'round. But, then again, I'm the guy who thinks disemboweling crooked attorneys is proper, too. (shrug)
