Tsunami victims' suit names NOAA and why people hate lawyers

It's enough to make me regret being an attorney that some clown of a lawyer filed the claim the gave rise to this article: Tsunami victims' suit names NOAA.
The agency that operates the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center in 'Ewa Beach is being sued by Indian Ocean tsunami survivors and relatives of victims.

The suit says the center and other defendants did not do enough to protect people from the December tsunami, which killed as many as 300,000 people.


Last time I checked, the requirements for a tort claim were a duty owed by the defendant to the plaintiff, a breach of that duty, causation and damages. Here the lawyer seems to have damages and is making the rest up.

One more reason I'll never be a judge.
