British Law: Something We Could Learn From

A woman who falsely accused two men of rape was ordered by a judge to pay over $1 million to the true victims of crime here.

This is a good step towards justice although the woman's identity was spared while the mens' lives have been nearly ruined:

"We have had 10 years of hell, with our names dragged through the mud," said Raman Kumar. "It is grossly unfair that after a judge has found her to be a liar, she can still keep her anonymity."
Anyway, hopefully America will adopt some tougher laws on those who falsely accuse in the future to discourage this evil.
