POTUS conference on legal reform

As noted yesterday, the President held a "Conference on the Economy" that included a major session on lawsuit abuse. The transcript of the lawsuit abuse conference is available here. In addition to strong statements by the President and Commerce Secretary Evans, there are comments from small business owners, the CEO of Home Depot, a doctor and patient, Common Good's Phil Howard, and our own George Priest, who makes an exceptionally compelling case. I'd encourage everyone to read the transcript in its entirety.
