Punishing lawyers for frivolous suits -- or human behavior?

"Fools," writes Norm Pattis, in response to news reports that new legislation would punish attorneys for filing frivolous lawsuits. Pattis continues, "Blaming lawyers for the rise in litigation is sort of like blaming doctors for cancer. There are a lot of angry people out there. They'll go to court by themselves if they can't find a lawyer."

What do you think?
