from Jesse’s Café Américain:

I am no legal expert, and therefore have no idea of the merits of this as a prospective case. The law involves things like intent, opportunity, evidentiary proof, and so forth. Apparently one can sue another entity for just about anything, but that does not mean that the case has any merit. And I certainly could not advance such a case based on even industry knowledge.
