"Lost in the coverage of Herman Cain's alleged sexual harassment episodes is a lesson for tort reformers: It always costs more in the long run to settle frivolous cases. Just ask the National Restaurant Association. The sexual harassment allegations against GOP presidential contender Cain arose when he headed the association. Though he had no part in investigating the allegations and resolving them on the NRA's behalf, the association chose to settle two cases for a total of $80,000, rather than spend hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal costs to defend them."
