Senate situation, cont'd

"But ATLA considers Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C. -- also a trial lawyer -- an ally, and sources predicted he would be more emboldened to push for their causes this year, now that he is not longer a newly elected senator. Meanwhile, the group said it expects to continue its strong relationships with Minority Leader Reid, Minority Whip Durbin and Senate Judiciary ranking member Patrick Leahy, D-Vt." (Molly M. Peterson, "Trial Lawyers Courting New Senate Allies For Tort Battles", CongressDaily PM, Jan. 13, not online).
