    Limits on Privacy

    My last job in California made a new rule. Due to a just passed privacy law, we were not allowed to discuss private matters between each other on company property. They were scared, did not know exactly what the law meant.

    After hello, do now ask "how are you"? We had an obviously pregnant lady, and even her close friends were forbidden. That was over a dozen years ago.

    California man sues Uber driver he punched

    COSTA MESA, Calif. - A Southern California man charged with assault and battery is accusing the man he was caught on tape punching of assault and battery.

    The incident was infamously captured on video, where former Taco Bell executive Benjamin Golden can be seen attacking an Uber driver. Golden has sued the driver for $5 million, claiming the video was recorded without his consent, a newspaper reported Saturday.

    Sued for recording an attack without consent? It's like one of those lunatic scenarios from Grand Theft Auto!!

    The article is dated 2002, but I do take the point. We're steadily 'losing the plot'; on a global scale, unfortunately.

    Very famous case where Tony Martin was convicted and jailed after much furore for shooting fleeing burglars in the back.
    That Law is based on common sense and natural justice, in that anybody could "arrange" to be disturbed on their own private property and shoot the person dead without comeback. So any husband might 'reasonably' and 'unknowingly' shoot dead his wife if she arrived home at the wrong time,because he 'feared' he was in danger.A lot cheaper and easier than divorce and maintenance payments.....It's based on the legal requirement that force equal to the threat be used when in danger from a threat.

    Shooting an unarmed, escaping suspect in the back should never be OK. However, the former burglar suing his on time assailant for injuries he received during the commission of a crime is preposterous. The lawyer who has encouraged the action should be taken to the Bar

    The trouble here is that it's difficult to know whether those burglars were armed or not. Some of these scumbags are armed, mostly with knives, but how would Tony Martin have been able to tell? If one of those burglars had been carrying a firearm of some sort, shooting second is a poor substitute for shooting first! But I feel very torn here, TBH, as I disapprove of disproportional force being used in relation to the threat entailed (for obvious reasons; you wouldn't want to shoot a kid dead for scrumping apples from your tree at night, would you?)

    As for Fearon's solicitors chasing compensation, they should indeed go before the bar!
