"The Lawyers Killing N.Y."



New York Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver (D-Weitz & Luxenberg) is so avid to eliminate the statute of limitations for civil rape claims, the better to open the sluices for negligent-security and premises-liability suits against businesses, that even the National Organization for Women is upset with him. It's all kind of symbolic of the stranglehold the trial bar has got on Albany (via NYCivic.org)(more there).
