“Oops! Cheerleader sued wrong company”
No problem. Her damages are unequivocal, $11 million. Her lawyer screwed up, and as a direct result cost his client this judgement. As a legal malpractice claim I would think it couldn’t get any clearer than this.

I have seen doctors sued who actually corrected problems caused by another doctor simply because you could read his name. Lesson learned, don’t sign something with a legible signature.

I would think that one of the easiest forms of tort reform w0uld be to make it easier to countersue.
