Tales of the Weird II

When arguing that it is necessary to protect from lawsuits the telecommunications companies that allowed the government to eavesdrop on their customers without a court's permission Rep. Dan Lungren said

"There is not one iota of evidence that the companies acted inappropriately whatsoever,"

Look there is not one iota of evidence that I improperly wiretapped anyone either (I did't really). Does Congressman Lungren think it is necessary for Congress to grant me retroactive immunity ?

Typically if there is no evidence of a tort, Congress relies on the authority of courts to dismiss frivolous lawsuits and to require the plaintiffs to pay all costs and legal fees.
