New Business for American Trial Lawyers: Sue For Hurt Feelings


Nine Russian activists are suing Madonna for millions. They were offended by her support of  homosexual rights  during a concert in Petersburg. A February Petersburg law makes it illegal “to promote homosexuality to minors” and reportedly there were children as young as nine at the Madonna concert. They are demanding $10.5 million in damages.

Madonna is not the only one. Three residents of Novosibirsk are suing the jailed Pussy Riot Punk Rock girls for 30,000 rubles  (about a thousand dollars) for hurt feelings caused by the punk rockers behavior in a Moscow cathedral.

U. S. lawyers: get on a plane to Russia. Maybe you can learn how to sue for hurt feelings in the United States where big bucks are at stake.

  1. The Rule of Law, and Business & Money have decoupled in Russia. From The Moscow Times' recent article (Aug 22, 2012): "... Gazprom was the most profitable company in the world in 2011, claiming a net profit of $46 billion, substantially more than the second most profitable company in the world, ExxonMobil, which made a net profit of only $41.1 billion. Yet the market value of ExxonMobil is $408 billion, while Gazprom is worth one quarter as much, at $112 billion." "... a price-earnings ratio of only 2.9"

    "The real objective of Gazprom's management could be to siphon off the company's money, as opposition leaders Boris Nemtsov and Vladimir Milov have analyzed so well in their study "Putin and Gazprom.""
