Respectful Insolence is a repository for the ramblings of the aforementioned pseudonymous surgeon/scientist concerning medicine and quackery, science and pseudoscience, history and pseudohistory, politics, and anything else that interests him (or pushes his buttons). Orac's motto: "A statement of fact cannot be insolent." (OK, maybe it can be just a little bit insolent.)
I guess our legal system leaves no good deed unpunished...
At first, I thought this might be a joke or an urban legend, but sadly it doesn't appear to be. I guess the two girls in the story did learn a hard life lesson: Don't try to do a good deed after 10 PM, especially if you have a nervous, sue-happy neighbor who might make you regret it. (Via Overlawyered.)
Update: Symtym has weighed in on the issue here and provided additional links about the story.
