$83M in punitive damages to a company that went after the wrong person for over a year

The $83M won't stand, but the collection agency is showing a tremendous lack of self-awareness:

In a regulatory filing on May 11, it said it believed “the verdict and magnitude of the award to be erroneous and intends to promptly request that the court set aside such an inappropriate award.”

I'm so happy that I live in a world where this is  a thing

I can hear the critics though: but that shiny little european thing isn't a real wheelbarrow!

Pretty good, but a little pricey. Ribs were cooked perfectly, but the flavor was a little different (sweet, interesting combination of spices, but not very smokey). Definitely get the banana pudding. Service was good, no complaints.
