    $2 million damages

    Hard to know what to make of this. Is it ambulance chasing or genuine vendor/manufacturer negligence? I imagine it's got some vendors really worried. No battery technology is risk free.

    1.9m for second degree burns? Anyone want to get a class action together and go after Bic?

    I'd say in this case it was a matter of cutting losses for the defendant vs spending a heap of money on lawyers.

    Kind of a worry that a precedent has been set though, watch this space I suppose.

    Yes. Would have been better had the vendors contested the amount awarded.

    I hope they're donating it to an appropriate charity for Brazilian homeless.

    The contest over the amount comes next Pleski, that's when the insurance agencies start pulling in their lawyers. The Yanks love their big headlines with these initial figures on litigation suits.

    I won an ego one in a comp from them. Gave it to my brother and vented while charging. Burnt a hole in the bedroom floor. It was a gift and I wouldnt do anything really.
    I was just taking the piss. I figure its karma for all the asshole things hes done.
