The only significant reason we hear anything at all about tort reform is because our increasingly corporate media wants us to believe something that is highly contrary to our best interests as citizens - something that would benefit big business greatly by removing our final means of control over them. Meanwhile, politicians gut our regulatory agencies to the point of insignificance. Democracy in this country is looking more and more like a failed experiment as it slowly morphs into fascism - with the voting populace asleep in front of the widescreen TV.

I guess the jurors involved in "Stella Award" cases are almost as gullible as those who believe everything they read in an e-mail... The above cases are fictional, according to the Stella Award site. See http://www.stellaawards.com/bogus.html.

We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
