Tort reform in the third branch



Normally, persuading the legislature and the executive to pass a law reforming problems is sufficient, but when it comes to tort reform, the trial bar has a well-funded arm that takes the battle to the third branch of government, the judiciary, which, dozens of times, has asserted its own legislative authority to strike down laws. The December 10 National Law Journal covers ATLA/AAJ's Center for Constitutional Litigation and its battles. POL's Richard Epstein and Michael Krauss are quoted.
