    Where the defendant could have traction is punitive damages.
    Nope. "Pain and suffering" is not limited to physical pain. For example, post-traumatic stress symptoms are fully compensable under tort.
    The head of damages is actually "pain, suffering and loss of enjoyment of life". The definition is quite broad in scope.
    Punitive and aggravated damages are different but related types of damages. They are only awarded for malicious and particularly egregious conduct.

    Considering the regulatory and criminal climate in which a firearms' business must operate, any false claims could be argued as deliberately intended to undermine legal commerce. How is this different from a frivolous lawsuit that bad gasoline spoiled a high performance car, or that gravity + skis + prepared slope = downhill skiing injury?

    I'm really not quite sure what you mean.
    But with "gravity + skis + slope = injury" there is no tort or intentional tort set out. This is fundamentally different than the actions of the false accuser here.
    I'm not sure if that responds to your comment, but hey, I don't have the space to teach an "intro to torts and civil damages" course here...

    Sorry, but I have to comment: I'm a Flight of the Conchords fan too.
    Well done.

    That was sure a convenient story neatly wrapped up in half a page. Nice glad it turned out for the best, if only real life was that easy. If only someone made a button.

    Guys here's an example.

    I was actually sniffing around and thinking about purchasing this insurance but I hadn't. Then, as I had been struggling to get my property back from my ex I started a civil suit against her. She went to the police and said she feared for her safety even though there are no grounds or reasons to justify why she felt that way. Zero threats, violence or even rude remarks. However, I was arrested and charged. My firearms and ammunition was seized and I was released on conditions not to posses firearms. As you can imagine, this is devastating and surreal. However, I'm also a police officer. She got me right where she knew it would hurt most and this ordeal has had tremendous implications on my career. So far I'm over $5,000 into this with no foreseeable end in sight.

    Don't be like me. Pull the trigger so to speak and get this insurance.

    I know the client who went through this personally as I take care of his commercial insurance as well. Trust me, there was nothing convinient about his experience. The end result was positive but it was still an extremely stressful time for him and there was nothing easy about it.

    It's called public mischief , and is a criminal code charge. Accuser should have been charged with this.
