Frivolous lawsuits

Earlier this week our High Court had to rule over the custody of a dog between a surgeon and his ex. I found the whole episode so silly, I didn't bother to read the details of the story. A couple of days later, the ST feature the story again. Its purpose? To ask if it was a frivolous case. They asked the obvious.

I wonder if as the ranks of the well to do gets thicker, would we not have more of such silly court cases? Concomitantly the poor are getting better at making themselves invisible. I wonder how much of the help they received they used to make themselves even more well hidden. Do they feel ashamed about their status? There is not need to if they have fallen on hard times through sheer bad luck. Unfortunately life is not like that. The innocent woman who got AIDS from her irresponsible husband is looked down upon also. People are quick to judge without first ascertaining the facts.
