I take it you have never gone through an injury (physical or mental) lawsuit. They almost always get a reduced dollar ammount. Many settle out of court.

The large dollar ammount is generally used as a scare tactic to settle out of court for a lesser ammount.

I personally feel that it should not be just the money(they'll never see 85 million total) but a publicly broadcast, thorough apaology, by Moore, restoring the soldier's good name should be made as well.

right on tonka, the 85 million isant expected but its eyecatching number. If they sued for $350,000 it wouldnt make the news on such a great scale. I assume half their agenda is to use the AP wires as a means to get the truth out and get the story out there and keep it out there for a few weeks. You couldnt buy a retraction of any subsatance for 350,000 but just putting 85 million on the lawsuit papers gets the truth out there.

I disagree with who ever said it was just a money grab. 1st micheal moore sold the movie as a documentary (more like mocu-mentry) he profited tens of million of dollars just off of that movie not including dvd sales. Much of the movie is based on clever or creative editing and falsities .... he deserves to be sued just for calling it a documentry. What other recourse does a soldier dihonored by MM have than to sue ? Would you rather he go beat him up and have his buddies give MM a pillow party? Maybe cut his brakes? Challenge him to a dual ?

lawsuits are the only recourse most civilized people have, and when a guy gets rich off of trashing your name you deserve what ever you can get ... no amount is to high.

Which is interesting in this case, because thats basically the social democratic position on the topic..
