One place you can defiantly meet celebrities is at the courthouse. It seems Celebrities are constantly suing and being sued. Obviously there is tons of money to be made through Lawsuits. And many times Lawsuits are done to recover wages and earnings that are never collected. Lawsuits have been used as a means of social justice. For instanc Dennis Quaid recently filed a lawsuit against a major Drug Company.
Suing Drug Companies
The Quaids claim that the company knew of dosage mix-ups and did not recall shipments of the drug or even warn hospitals of the dangers.
The Quaid's children, Thomas Boone and Zoe Grace, were born Nov. 8. They were hospitalized soon after at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles after being given 1,000 times the recommended dose of Heparin on Nov. 18.
The twins "suffered and will continue to suffer injuries" from the accident, the suit alleges.
The Quaids' lawyer, Susan E. Loggans, says that the major drug company knew about the medication labeling errors had resulted in death but did nothing. 1.5 million medication errors are made every year in America .
Although the babies "were very critical for a while," the infants have recovered and "everything looks good." We live in an age of medical miracles. At the same time we live in an age of boundless greed. When a drug company makes windfall profits on a drug that turns out to be harmful, they must pay. Sometimes legal money judgements are the only way to police the Major Drug Companies.
In many cases human behavior defies all logic. Its as if people become so obsessed about making the extra little profit or beating the system that they loose all perspective about everything else, especially basic morals. Celebrities know this better than anyone and they get sued on a regular basis. its no wonder that when push comes to shove they will sue back, If we are to , "Go Where The Stars Go" we may have to take a trip to the courthouse , where many find justice will finally prevail.
