International Herald Tribune: Indictment Aims at Tort Reform Where it Counts

This is the correct approach for trying to bring under control of culture of litigation for profit. Problems arise not from those who sue for lots of money, because substantial damage awards do make corporations accountable to the public, but instead the problem resides with those lawyers who abuse the system by encouraging and coercing litigants in the interest of profit without regard for the legal and economic consequences. Meaningful tort reform does not begin with the creation of a new set of laws that restricts our rights to redress our grievances in the legal system, but with the trammeling of those who perpetrate criminal abuses of our legal system.
