The Case Against Tort Reform
There are a few truths about our legal system: if you have the money and time, you can sue anybody for anything. It is true that there are litigious people and unethical attorneys who will bring lawsuits on their behalf in spite of the evidence.

However, there are protections built into the law that protect you, me and businesses from lawsuits that are without legal merit. This week, Reed Morgan makes a second appearance on The Verdict to discuss the type of propaganda used to bring about tort reform.
