The line gets drawn...

by one's ability to get 12 of his peers to unanimously agree with him.

By the by, this is the standard we have right now.(unless you are the government)

In order to bring a cause of action against someone you must demonstrate:
1. Duty
2. Breach of Duty
3. Causation (which directly and proximately caused)
4. Injury (harm)

So...if your opponent is a goofball, and their claim is goofy, or otherwise hair brained, then they may find themselves having a hard time convincing 12 of your peers to agree with them.

As someone being persecuted, you get to defend yourself by summoning 12 of your peers and forcing your opponent to convince all 12 of them that their feelings getting hurt harmed them and their claim for a bazillion dollars is valid.
