Judge Rules That Congressman Is Immune From Lawyer’s Questions

The AP reports, “A judge has ruled Sen. Saxby Chambliss doesn’t have to answer questions from a lawyer suing Imperial Sugar on behalf of victims of the explosion at the company’s Georgia refinery last year.” The lawyer, Mark Tate, who is representing “families of six employees killed in the blast and five injured workers, subpoenaed Chambliss in hopes of asking him if the company sought his help to discredit a whistleblower and discourage workers from suing.” He said, “Now other courts are going to pick up this Chatham County State Court order and say, `Hey, if you get elected (to Congress), you’re immune.'”

From the American Association for Justice news release.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
