According to the article Lawsuit Filed Over 1939 Stuttering Study certain orphans were put under psychological stress - mainly belittling them for the slightest speech impediments - to figure out whether the same done by parents was the cause of children stuttering.

By today's standards of such studies this seems barbaric. I felt they had a fair right to be upset - I wasn't so sure if they had a fair right to sue after so many years, but I read on looking to be able to take one side of the fence are the other. It came quickly...

I was all for their getting the money 'til I read this pearl sentence:

None of the test subjects became stutterers. But that has done little to temper the anger they have felt in the three years since they learned what was done to them.

What do you mean "three years since"? They didn't even remember it until someone told them "Hey, we did this shit to you all that time ago..."? They are suing because they are claiming "lifelong" damage....yet they didn't even realize it happened to them until three years ago? Couldn't have been that damaging.

Just sounds like another way for some greedy people to try and make a quick buck to me. I'd like to know more about this - see exactly what these lifelong damages were and I might change my mind. But for now, yet another case of sue-itis.

Could we making sueing illegal?
