The Case Against Lawyers

The host of "Catherine Crier Live" on Court TV offers an approachable, well-written account of lawsuit abuse in America. Crier combines her hard-hitting reporting as a journalist, her witty writing style, and her experience as a lawyer and judge to cast her view of a legal system run amok. Crier's book is easily digestible for the novice and a good introduction to excess litigation.
