As Politico recently reported, trial lawyers have become alarmed at Texas Governor Rick Perry’s front runner status in the race for the Republican Presidential nomination.  The three term Governor made Trial Lawyers public enemy number one and made restricting access to the courts his top priority.  Trial lawyers traditionally support candidates because of their opposition to so-called ‘Tort Reform.” Perry pushed through legislation under the “Tort Reform” banner that limits the ability of Texas consumers to obtain fair compensation for loss or injury and with the adoption of the “loser pays rule” punishes the losing party for trying to access justice.

 

Speaking of Justice host Jan Schlichtmann says “So-called ‘Tort Reform’ is just an excuse to prevent the right of the people to equal justice under law.”
