Don't Talk About My Frivolous Suit!



David J. Pfahler, who sued an 8 year-old boy for injuring him in a ski accident, has now asked a judge to bar the boy's parents from talking about the lawsuit, the Denver Post reports. Pfahler's lawyer hopes that the gag order, if issued, can halt a barrage of derision in the media so extensive and hilarious that "the plaintiffs will be unable to have a fair trial." I doubt it, but I suppose it is worth a shot.

Pfahler also complains of receiving death threats from enraged members of the general public. Moderate your enthusiasm, tort reformers.
