    this guy ain't the greatest dentist in the world:

    http://www.baddentist.com/news/

    wikipedia:
    "Recently the Rosenthal Institute has been embarrassed by revelations that Larry Rosenthal has been sued four times for malpractice, that he has had his dental license suspended after admitting to illegally purchasing and distributing large quantities of cocaine and other drugs, and lied about his record under oath."

    I don't understand what makes him so bad? If I owned a home and it was damaged in a airplane wreck I would expect someone else to be responisble. What just because he is a rich dentist he doesn't have the right to seek damges? He can't sue the dead pitcher and the next best person is the widow. It's seems like it sucks to be him, but just because here husband died in an airplane wreck doesn't release him of the liability. He might be a bad dentist, but I don't think this should have anything to do with it.

    He may be a sleazball, but the lady who started the whole thing looks like a sleaze herself:

    http://www.lyingdentist.com/

    She claims he put on big veneers and gave her TMJ:rolleyes:
    She also claimed that he was never trained in prosthodontics...sounds like her lawyer is a sleaze too. Since when do you have to be a prosthodontist to do veneers?

    All of this is ******ed.

    I see no problem with him suing for the damages. If somebody ran their car into my house, I would expect them to pay.

    The dentist apparently works on big name celebrities which is why he probably receives multiple lawsuits. When some wannabe big name celebrity doesn't get the smile that Catherine Zeta Jones has then they feel they're entitled to damages.

    Then, when the rich dentist tries to file what seems to be a legitimate lawsuit he gets barked at...or at least he will. Condolences to the widow, but your husband was a ****ty pilot.

    Not so sure about the drug claim that someone posted above from wikipedia. Seems to me you'd have your license more than suspended if he was distributing large amounts of cocaine.

    It sounds like a legit lawsuit to me.

    What are you supposed to do when someone flies a plane into your home and destroys it?

    The fact that the guy died has nothing to do with the lawsuit.

    In fact, you know what I bet will happen is some crazy lawyer will probably counter-sue the dentist for having his apartment obstructing the pilot's airspace and causing his death.

    It's a legit lawsuit, I would've done the same thing, but some of the comments at the bottom of the article are pretty stupid placing the blame on the dentist whose home got destroyed.

    The dentist (and everyone else) has a right to live w/o stuff (airplanes or otherwise) crashing into their residences. Whereelse is there for you to enforce your rights except in a court of law? It seems legitimate to me. My condolences go to the widow. It is a rather sorrowful situation, both the crash and the lawsuit.
