Your Jan. 9 article regarding the lawsuit filed against Camp Thurman and the city of Pantego was unbelievable. (See: “Pantego and camp sued over death of man two years ago”)

To think any attorney would have the audacity to sue Camp Thurman when their 30-year-old client was killed after hopping the fence surrounding private property then trying to zip line at four o’clock in the morning all while under the influence of alcohol and marijuana, indicates three things:

One, there is a reason enrollment in law schools is down this year, there is not enough work to go around. Two, Texas lawmakers still need to do some work on preventing frivolous and fraudulent lawsuits. And three, some lawyers will take on any case just to try and make a buck.
