About those Sex Harassment claims against Herman Cain...

Before everyone jumps all over him for being a perv, I would ask that you stop and think about the situation as a whole first. Sex harassment claims are very difficult to defend against. You usually have no documentation, and few if any unbiased witnesses, and you never know what kind of jury you'll draw either, so you are going into court with the deck stacked against you. Secondly, in these situations, the corporation is named in the lawsuit and therefore the corporations ins. co is in the driver's seat on any settlements. The accused might have to sign off on any settlement, but if you refuse, the ins. co will leave you holding the bag for whatever the jury might decide. So the pressure on the accused to sign on the dotted line is immense. Many women (and lawyers) have figured out that filing a bogus sex harassment claim is tantamount to winning the lottery, there is very little incentive not to. At worst, you are given just enough money to pay the plaintiff's lawyer, at best you retire a rich person. Who cares if nobody would ever hire you again? You're rich! THIS is a perfect example of why Loser Pays must be instituted nation wide, if you are going to make this kind of claim, you need to have some skin in the game.
