    Default Man charged with attacking Uber driver sues driver for $5M

    COSTA MESA, Calif. A Southern California man captured on video attacking an Uber driver has sued the driver for $5 million, claiming the video was recorded without his consent.

    Good luck with that. You don't need consent.

    You can tell a lot about a man by the way he treats people he doesn't have to be nice to. This guy is a real piece of work.

    this reminds me of the situation I was posting about with DD

    I had a tenant beat up another tenant in third tenants yard. She was convicted of a lesser offense in a plea deal. I evicted her for illegal activity on my property (assault). So she sued me TWICE..... Case went nowhere, because I refused to settle, but still


    people just don't want to take responsibility for their actions. They do something terrible, and they just can't see what they have done. So they do whatever they need to do to make themselves look better.

    but people know the truth, we are not completely stupid. Most folks still have decent values.

    You're absolutely right about that. If I'm with an acquaintance or someone I just met and I see them, for example, treat a server in a restaurant like a servant, I limit my exposure to that person. Life's too short not to treat people decently.

    I'll say something to that person right then and there.

    and that is probably exactly what his bosses thought when they saw the video, and why they fired him
