Let’s see…what was that about trial lawyers and limiting lawsuits, Shrub? Paraplegic Sues Chrysler Over Heated Seat (AP):

A paraplegic man who suffered burns when the heated seat of his SUV malfunctioned is suing Daimler Chrysler Corp. for $14.1 million.

Matt Beller, of Klamath Falls, who filed the suit this week in U.S. District Court in Eugene, said he was in his 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee when the temperature of the driver’s seat climbed to more than 150 degrees last Feb. 20.

Beller says he has no feeling below his chest because of military injuries and said he did not know he had been burned until the next day.

He underwent skin graft surgery and had to lie on his stomach for three months, he said.
