Tort reform, we hardly knew ye.

Why can’t legislators turn from stupidity and fix our tort system?

Starburst Fruit Chews are exactly as their name would indicate: chewy. But one Boston-area woman says the candies are so chewy, they should come with a warning label.
Victoria McArthur, of Romero, Mich., is suing Starbursts’ parent company, Mars Inc., for more than $25,000 for “permanent personal injuries” she claims she sustained after biting into one of their yellow candy in 2005.

I hope the judge throws this out of court. I doubt that will happen, of course.
And I certainly hope Mars fights it instead of going limp like so many of these corporations do. With a few notable exceptions, of course.
