What a timely editorial



The Maui News writes, "Maui needs tort reform."

Opening in Maui on Saturday, the American Association for Justice's winter convention. AAJ's major lobbying expense in Congress this last quarter: preventing tort reform.

Medical liability reform was a big issue in Hawaii's 2009 Legislature, but legislation did not win final approval. The publisher of the Maui paper is keeping the pressure on.

Earlier Point of Law posts on the Maui convention here. As noted earlier, big speakers are Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer and Hawaii Congressman Neil Abercrombie. Abercrombie is resigning soon to run for governor, so his comments to the trial lawyers audience should be of keen interest to Hawaii's voters. Will his speech be open to the press?
