As the son of a small-business owner, I have seen firsthand the ill-effects of a frivolous lawsuit. Even when you win, you lose.
In my mind, there is no lower person than one who tries to steal from another behind cowardice manipulation of our legal system. Scent-Lok clothing was attacked by such people. The company won, but did it really?
Scent elimination and suppression is big business in the hunting industry. For most big game animals, their noses are their best defense. So if hunters can use a tool or system to help hide their scent, then the chance of success increases. Many companies manufacture systems for doing this. Scent-Lok produces clothing that includes carbon, which absorbs human scent.
For years, Scent-Lok marketed its garments by claiming the clothing eliminates human odor. Well, some scoundrel figured he could get rich by claiming the clothes did not completely do what they claim to. Then eight other lawsuits ensued. These folks figured they had found a loophole through which they could tear down the life’s work of another while lining their own lazy and corrupt pockets.
Thankfully, they were wrong.
