My Friend is Talking About Suing

My buddy Wilson was talking about suing the guy that he used to work for, but I am not sure that it is going to be a practical idea really. For starters I think that he may have exceeded the personal injury claims time limits since the thing he is talking about happened about a year and maybe eight months ago. I am not sure, but I believe that might be too long ago for this sort of thing. The other problem is that I really do not believe his case is strong enough to interest a lawyer here in Dublin. It is not like in the USA where a lot of people sue just to shake down other people. You have to have a really strong case because here the loser of a case is liable for the legal expenses of both sides. Obviously that is something that discriminates against people who lack financial means, but it also discourages frivolous lawsuits. Wilson is a rather strange fellow to put it mildly. It is not like he is strange in any sort of bad way. You would never worry about him hurting you or anything like that, but he is not quite right and everyone around here knows it too. I sort of wonder how he would play in front of a jury. It is possible that he would be a sympathetic figure and since I know his old boss, it is safe to say that this would hardly be true of him. Most people can tell that he is a huge jerk almost instantly, but obviously he is not going to behave the way he usually does when he is sworn to tell the truth in front of a judge and jury. I am sure he would be a whole new man.
