AJP on state tort politics



Audio feature "How the Trial Bar Is Taking Control in Key States" from American Justice Partnership in which Todd Young and Kristyn Shayon discuss political initiatives of the trial bar in seven states: Colorado, Delaware, Iowa, Kentucky, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. AJP has a new publication, Trial Bar Watch, which keeps an eye on such developments at the state level. According to the latest edition (#3) (PDF), things are turning chilly in once moderate states like Iowa, where the state business association says as many as 50 trial-lawyer-backed bills have been introduced in the legislature. Earlier numbers in the series are apparently not online but can be obtained by email request.
