  • Darren McKinney, American Tort Reform Association, Washington, D.C.

    Among Mr. James' New York State Bar Association membership are some of the most litigious parasites in the country, including NY Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver. So what is James supposed to say? Our nation is drowning in debt, and precious court resources could be better husbanded if judges were to promptly dismiss the thousands of preposterous, no-injury lawsuits filed each year and, in doing so, threaten with contempt charges the self-serving lawyers who file them? Don't hold your breath.
