Question:What are your thoughts about having a third party finance the litigation of a party to a lawsuit? Would this option help to level the playing field between those who have deep pockets and those that to not?
There is a twist to this Gawker incident in that Mr. Thiel had other motives than seeing that Mr. Hogan received justice (read between the lines in the attached articles). This is a good example of being financial right.
What are your thoughts on the Gawker incident? Explain. What are other examples of people suing because they have the financial resources. Is it fair? How can we level the playing field?
Remember, the law provides the framework of what you can and cannot do. You just have to know the rules.
