Re: Not the solution I agree but reluctantly. Trying to solve this would probably be impossible unless society is willing to accept a certain degree of collateral damage (i.e. less justice for the innocent). The current system (context greater than just lawsuits) is designed to error on the side of potentially letting the guilty go free so that every possible effort it made to guarantee justice for the innocent.
After saying that, perhaps we could help the situation through different kind of deterrent. Perhaps some kind of jeopardy for the attorney who enables the lawsuit? Not a fine but perhaps formal system that tracks reputation. If an attorney's reputation is at stake to the point that it interferes with their ability to practice (not because they are forbidden but because customers don't want them), perhaps the situation will police itself. It's not like we're going to run out of attorneys. There seem to be an endless supply and if we all did what we should in the voting booth, in a few years we could add another 535 to the body! Of course if we're tracking reputation, the 535 might not get customers either!
