Home Depot's Bernard Marcus

The co-founder of the home improvement retailer speaks out on "Solutions for the Litigation Crisis" in a cover interview with Philanthropy Roundtable. And this subsequent letter to the editor from Kelly Young, vice president of the Claude R. Lambe Charitable Foundation, urges philanthropists to address the litigation issue and also has kind words for a certain pair of websites "that track the trial lawyers’ constant assault on business, freedom, progress, and limited government". Yet more: Marcus has a San Francisco Examiner commentary reprinted by the Center for Individual Freedom.
