Report Suggests Need to Reform Civil Lawsuit System

The AP (3/11) reports, “Trial lawyers and a judicial think tank are suggesting major changes in the way courts hear civil suits, saying current rules allow attorneys to drag out disputes by demanding irrelevant and hard-to-find data.” According to a report by “an American College of Trial Lawyers task force and the Denver-based Institute for the Advancement of the American Legal System” the “current rules for ‘discovery’ — the sharing of information ahead of a trial — in civil suits are antiquated and too broad” and “they suggest that federal and state courts restrict discovery to the specifics of a case and limit how much data attorneys can request after the first round of information sharing.”

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...)
