Tort Reform: What's in a Name?

Comments Off

The change the "reformers" want to persuade the American people to enact is to abandon the Constitutional protection of a righ to trial by jury. Rather than allow a group of 12 disinterested citizens to resolve a fact situation and apply justice for that particular case the insurance, tobacco and pharmaceutical industries want to limit the amount that they will have to pay regardless of the damage they cause. To do this they must convince voters that the present system is broken and that common people are unable to recognize justice. Don’t be fooled.
