Someone notices the AAJ's leadership changes



Below we note the June 16 Roll Call story, "Trial Lawyers Now Playing Defense," a debatable assessment but still informative enough. The article includes the first reference we've seen in a news publication about Jon Haber's replacement as CEO of the American Association for Justice, the trial lawyers' lobby: "Meanwhile, the AAJ is looking for a new CEO after Jon Haber resigned this spring. Tom Henderson, a longtime veteran of the group, is serving as interim CEO. 'They're going forward with a search, but I can't tell you when it's going to be filled,' Lipsen said."

In a May 28 post, we observed, "AAJ is a powerful group, has an aggressive legislative agenda and is clearly recognized by the White House as an ally. Obviously AAJ isn't publicizing its leadership moves, but shouldn't the beat reporters be paying a little closer attention to the goings on there?"

So there you go.

P.S. Here's a photo of Tom promoting the AAJ convention in San Francisco.
