Column: Exploiting for Profit



I have a new column, co-written with Tiger Joyce, the president of the American Tort Reform Association, in the most recent issue of the National Law Journal. The piece describes the rise in litigation under state consumer protection acts, which as applied in some states offer statutory and treble damages to classes of plaintiffs with no evidence of injury or reliance. For online audio of the July conference from which this column emerged, see here.
