"Is Common Sense Dead?"

DaimlerChrysler Assistant General Counsel Steve Hantler, a national leader on tort reform issues, wrote this August 4 column in the San Francisco Examiner. Pulling his title from Philip Howard's widely read 1996 book, The Death of Common Sense, the essay also references the Manhattan Institute's 2003 report, Trial Lawyers, Inc. See also Hantler's recent piece in Chief Executive magazine, "The Mounting Assault by Trial Lawyers, Inc."
