"Trial Lawyers Inc. -- California"



The Manhattan Institute Center for Legal Policy (which sponsors this site and with which I'm affiliated) this week unveils a "new comprehensive study of the devastating impact of California's lawsuit industry" entitled "Trial Lawyers Inc.: California". It builds on 2003's much talked-about "Trial Lawyers Inc." report and, like that one, has been assembled by Jim Copland of the Institute.

Tomorrow (Apr. 14) from 10 to 2 at the St. Francis Hotel in San Francisco, the Manhattan Institute and the Pacific Research Institute are sponsoring an event (details) to call attention to the new report. Panelists include Jim Copland, Steven Hantler of DaimlerChrysler, and John Sullivan of the Civil Justice Association of California; there follows a keynote luncheon speech by author/TV host Catherine Crier, introduced by PRI's Sally Pipes. P.S. The study has now been posted on the web, and is here. And Jim has an op-ed in the San Francisco Examiner (Apr. 13).
