From the AP: "WASHINGTON -- The American Association for Justice, a trade group representing trial lawyers, spent more than $1.1 million in the first quarter to lobby on medical malpractice liability and other issues, according to a disclosure form. The organization, whose members represent plaintiffs in personal injury, product liability and other tort cases, also lobbied in favor of legislation that would prohibit mandatory binding arbitration clauses in consumer and other contracts."
