Woman in Wendy's Finger Case Arrested - Yahoo! News

--posted by Tony Garcia on 4/22/2005

Like I alluded to before...we all knew this was coming.
Anna Ayala was taken into custody late Thursday at her Las Vegas home, police said.

Remember back when her home was searched she exclaimed in wonderment about the police, ""Lies, lies, lies, that's all I am hearing. They should look at Wendy's. What are they hiding? Why are we being victimized again and again?"

For those who do not yet understand how bad the litig-lotto is to the economy just look at this first step result of Alaya's efforts to set up her next score.
Sales have dropped at franchises in Northern California, forcing layoffs and reduced hours, the company said. Wendy's also has hired private investigators, set up a hot line for tips and offered a $100,000 reward for anyone who provides information leading to the finger's original owner.

When frivilous lawsuits are even filed it costs companies a lot of money. Imagine how mush Wendy's as a whole would have had to spend defending themselves.

If the lawsuits actually see the inside of a courtroom and worse yet get awarded (like the infamous McDonald's coffee moron) it has a bigger effect of the same results: increased prices, layoffs and reduced hours/pay for remaining employees.

Tort reform NOW.

Oh yeah, and send Ayala up the river.
