The developments in Tort law started simultaneously with modern scientific development. Numerous amendments had to be made to this law because the fast pace of technological progress ensured the inevitability of newer high tech means to commit crime.
When it comes to cyber crimes, some of the cyber criminals could commit the crime and walk around freely because they could easily hide behind high tech tools. The Tort law governing cyber crimes and cyber criminals has seen numerous amendments. However certain lawyers and their litigants used the numerous loopholes in this law to demand huge sums of money as compensation.
However the most glaring issue is that a large section of the population has no knowledge about their legal rights. This ignorance of the common man not only helped the lawyers to foist false charges on innocent people because for some litigants, the loss of money involved in fighting a case didn?t matter at all because the obvious benefits to be reaped later on far outweighed the initial costs.
Another glaring aspect seen was that of the real aggrieved people shying away from going to courts. The main reason for this trend was the high cost of litigation and a justice system that was very expensive and dilatory.
