Topics on deck:

- Dominique Strass Kahn counter-sues hotel maid.
- National medical malpractice payouts are not going up.... "crisis" in healthcare has nothing to do with lawsuits
- General Mills must defend a lawsuit in California where they are being sued because of allegedly false claims that their "Fruit Roll-Ups" are made with real fruit... lawsuit says the advertising claim is false and misleading...
- OJ Simpson somehow hired another lawyer, who is now trying to get his last theft conviction over-turned on the basis that OJ's lawyer at that time was lousy.
