Here's the thing, though, a lot of times these suits - though groundless as the day is long - are settled and they do walk away with some $$$ in their pockets because it is easier for the ones being sued to settle and pay a little than to deal with fighting it (and the publicity that can come with that fight). This is why there are lawyers who will actually PURSUE cases like this and help to make a case out of nothing. Just watch the tv for an hour or so and count the number of commercials you can see for various law offices advertising for cases built off of situations that they can spin into a lawsuit.
