Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0899301886, Hardcover)

Frivolous lawsuits and defenses are not frivolous matters. Many regard them as the root cause of the back-ups and malfunctions in the American judicial system. The effects of these suits have general public impact since courts are tax-supported and excessive settlements reach the consumer in the form of higher insurance premiums. Written by a practicing attorney, the book carefully defines frivolous or unjustifiable litigation, and then goes on to discuss such topics as medical and dental malpractice, abuse of process, malicious prosecution, wrongful civil proceedings, false arrest and/or imprisonment, and retaliatory action. The attorney's role in class actions suits is also covered. There are ample citations of case law which illustrate specific points and areas of frivolity. Finally, the book presents remedies and sanctions which are available to discourage these wasteful and harassing actions, many of which are supported by the American Bar Association.
