Litigation groups: Continuous expansion is the key to profits



Reviewing the American Association for Justice's schedule for its summer convention in San Francisco, we see a brace of proposed litigation groups, those AAJ mutual aid societies for lawyers wanting to learn the tricks of product liability and class action trade. So might these new targets be?

  • Fleet Phospho-Soda Litigation Group (Proposed) Meeting
  • Chinese Drywall Litigation Group (Proposed) Meeting
  • Denture Cream Litigation Group (Proposed) Meeting
  • Durom Cup Litigation Group (Proposed) Meeting
  • Bankruptcy Litigation Group (Proposed) Meeting
  • Outbreak of Disease Litigation Group (Proposed) Meeting
  • Hydroxycut Litigation Group (Proposed) Meeting
  • Reglan Litigation Group (Proposed) Meeting
  • Cable Set-Top Box Litigation Group (Proposed) Meeting
  • Yaz/Yasmin Litigation Group (Proposed) Meeting

Chinese drywall and bankruptcy are obvious enough choices, and others are familiar from lawyers' web ads. But there's always something new. Cable set-top boxes. Denture cream. Huh. Guess there's some fan of The Lawrence Welk Show just waiting to cash in.
