In all my years of practice I never lost a single case, but then I did screen potential clients carefully for legitimate claims and the majority were settled out of court to the clientís satisfaction. There really arenít many statutes in malpractice law and case law is rarely cited. Most arguments are over the meaning of one word, Ďnegligentí and those donít occur too often since the negligence is usually obvious to the jury like amputating the wrong foot. My lowest fee was over a half mil so needless to say I made more money my first month in private practice than I did in 14 years of government work.
A lawyer can be sued for a blunder (malpractice) just like a doctor. To win you only need to prove two elements, damage and negligence. I would have accepted a legal malpractice case if one had turned up. I donít think much of lawyers or doctors (or preachers).
Iím finding it harder and harder to see what all this has to do with aiming your own dish by SNR only. While Iíve had dogs chew up many things including live power cords Iíve never seen one that could move a properly installed dish by pulling on the cable including my 120-lb Dobies.
With ViaSat's audio tuning method, even I could not aim the dish correctly; I have a 60 dB hearing loss in the higher frequency used, and can not hear all tones used.
With the system they have in place, a DIY tune could be monitored, just as an installer's aiming is monitored. Adjusting the dish is not complicated; its three adjustments that could be explained via Youtube video, as done in England.
