I have read the text. Their claim is without any merit and will get thrown out of any court in the world. But perhaps not in Norway.

Oh, right, Norway's kinda weird that way. I guess the scandinavian countries could really learn a lot from USA.

Anyone know the origin of blonde jokes? Or is it just the way of things?

Learn from the US legal system!? What a strange notion!
