  1. 🤔Do you agree?
    👔If you’re looking for a great suit Indochino will make you a fully custom slim fit suit for only $359 https://bit.ly/2IeeB8W

  2. Didn't this goofball "legal eagle" once post all his videos titled with "REAL Lawyer……(blah blah blah)"? Apparently he's no longer a "real" lawyer.

  3. As AMAZINGLY cowboy amateurish and backwards as the US legal & justice system is… Its oddly weird to see somebody defending it.

  4. The american way of paying for trial costs is just another example of how in Europe there are better protection laws for individuals.
    The american law obviously benefits rich people and discriminates against the poor, no wonder that that rule doesn't change and is still in place maybe hundreds of years after it was passed

  5. Shouldn't the Plaintiff have all of the evidence before filing suit? The Plaintiff could sue for no other reason than to have the Defendant tied up in a Court room knowing that all the time they are there, it's costing the Defendant money through time away from work, or Business.
    So my question is, why can't the Court proceed right away?
    and let the Plaintiff justify his cause, then and there?

  6. Classifying John Oliver and HBO's victory as "pyrrhic" is only true from a purely financial standpoint. I'm sure HBO would also take into account the defense of their reputation and the ongoing notice to the world at large that they won't be pushed around, not to mention the publicity it generated. Not all of the cost benefit analysis in defending Oliver and the show is purely the cost of the suit.

  7. Not gonna lie … That was the best JOHN OLIVER … EVER !!! The story about the kidney stone killed me !!! That Mr. Bob Murray seems like a nice fellow. Bawhahahahaha !!!

  8. Thank you for making the obscure workings of the legal system comprehensible. You seem to lean towards common sense. I will be watching you in the futurel

  9. Annnnd. I DO absolutely agree with the "loser pays" system. Should be no matter what. Should always be. Would eliminate SOOOOOO Many frivilous lawsuits, it wouldn't even be funny!

  10. Soooo SLAP suit = filing against Mike Bloomberg for claiming he actually did ANYTHING in NYC after 9/11. Or, against you for letting your tie flop around, because you have a tie tack. Frankly, I LOVE the latter. Thanks for doing that! But, nevertheless, I'm filing suit against you for wearing WAY too much hair gel in a video!

  11. And, frankly, he's correct in the so called SLAPP lawsuits. I brought it up that the State was bringing a case against my 1st, fourth, and poententially 5th amendment rights, and they DID have to call a supervisor to the scene, and this evidence was brought up in court. While I ultimately lost on the amendment accusations, they DID have to prove that it was NOT in a violation to my rights. Bottom line is KNOW, and EXERCISE your rights people!!!!

  12. And BTW… AS you've done in the past don't say that Trump, etc. was on the hook for the legal fees. IT WAS THOSE WHO WERE BACKING STORMY TO COME AGAINST HIM IN THE FIRST PLACE!!!! TELL THE TRUTH!!!! FAKE NEWS!!!! FAKE NEWS!!!!

  13. Frankly at 15:50 the lawyer would do HIMSELF some justice by citing NY Times v. Sullivan etc. Before it even gets there. Do yourself a favor! Eyeroll! And certainly JO was outside of the system in doing so…. I'm just saying, and JO actually didn't either. If you're gonna go first amendment in proving your're in the right, might as well go ALL the way in showing the public just how much RIGHT you are! Oh, and btw I hate JO, and everything he stands for, and yet I LOVE the Constitution of the USA!

  14. btw "actual malice" is not misleading, it's a fulcrum of NY Times V. Sullivan, and it IS actually kinda a BIG deal! eyeroll "lawyer." eyeroll.

  15. Annnd first and foremost, this is why the 1st, 4th, and 5th amendments are basically ANY citizens best friends. Why I might drill down into JO's citizenship. He DOES have it right… Fair comment, etc. basically shields us Americans from a TON of LEGITIMATE legal lawsuits. Of course, this doesn't mean that someone can't just drag you into court, willy nilly, for NO reason whatsoever, and like we BOTH said in this video, why it's incredibly important that there should be LOSER PAYS system.
