Gun Company Wants Teacher's Widow To Pay Legal Costs

A South Florida gun distributor wants the widow of a slain middle school teacher to pay its defense costs from last year's five-week trial. The Valor Corp. says it is entitled to recover legal costs, including attorney's fees, because Pam Grunow, wife of slain teacher Barry Grunow, lost her lawsuit. She had accused the Broward County company of being responsible for her husband's death.

Seems reasonable to me -- the lawsuit is completely silly and an utter waste of time. "Loser pays costs" is a reasonable principle when a suit is particularly frivolous.
