Re: Might have is not the basis for lawsuit
Thats not really what I was positing. My assertion that other individuals will fall under this category of owning a vulnerable Jeep. If they fall under the use case and it is determined that Fiat-Chrysler does have to pay out then they may be able to collect utilizing that lawsuit as a citation. It happens all the time from a medical perspective. "If you've been exposed to x, then you could be entitled to appropriations." Law offices advertise from this angle quite a bit. So not sure why its such a ludicrous assertion when it happens quite often.

Might have is not the basis for lawsuit
Gee, I worked on the 101st floor of the south tower and had I known that one day in September it would be lowered from 101 to the ground floor level, I might have chosen a different job, so WHO can i sue over a decision I MIGHT have made.  Lawsuits don't work that way.  Ever.  And it gets into Minority report territory.  What I am arrested for something I MIGHT have done or MIGHT do.  Well there is some social media in that one but even so suing a company for something that might have influenced a purchase decision?????  HEY, WHAT ABOUT VOLKSWAGEN???   Lets take them down too, lousy Germans!!!

Scope of Lawsuit
What is the reach of this lawsuit? By this I mean, if it turns out that Fiat-Chrysler needs to pay the accusers, could other vulnerable Jeep users jump on the band wagon and file ancillary lawsuits if the company still refuses to patch?
