The tragedy at Sago Mine in West Virginia was horrible, however the relay of information between one mine official and the families of 12 mine workers seems to have led to the families deciding to sue for grief. Apparently, the families were initially told that all 12 men had survived (along with the one survivor who had been found earlier). 3-4 hours later, word arrives that all 12 men are dead. The miscommunication wasn't just between the families as several news organizations also ran cover stories claiming all 12 had survived, calling it a miracle.
While one can understand the grief involved in being later told those you thought were alive are now dead, has this society gotten to the point where every mistake needs to end up in court?
Tragic? Yes. Cause for a law suit?
I can't even get the fat chick at Burger King to get my order right and make it my way...should I sue her for it?
