Illinois: A Madison County dissident



Belleville, Ill. attorney Tom Keefe believes that big payouts on many locally filed class actions are "utterly ridiculous", that the asbestos docket includes out-of-state cases that "[don't] belong here", and that a few bad-apple lawyers seeking riches have "put themselves first and have destroyed the profession." Not a surprising set of views in themselves, the difference being that Keefe is a successful local personal injury attorney who clearly feels no obligation to march in lockstep with some of his brethren.
