Talk:American Tort Reform Association

From SourceWatch
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Started basic overview. Will add links to "tort reform" in a day or two. Looking through their newsletters, lots of interesting material.

They say judicial hell holes are made by "Judges" but I haven't yet found any names of judges yet.

They mentioned in their newsletter, that legislators are blocking laws that will defend our telecom companies from lawsuits regarding government wiretapping. Sure their are lots of material on these as the NSA wiretapping has been all over the news.

We need a section on "mandatory arbitration" clauses, as this prevents people from having access to the courts. It appears that they agree with these agreements. I have not established this firmly, more research is required.

They are upset about their being no cap on damages regarding anticipated medical cost. Apparent the cost incurred in medical malpractice should not be a factor...

Way too much material in their newsletter to go through.

edit explanations

hi, Khaddar,

To explain my edits to this page -- first, I reinstated info that you had removed. One of our main SourceWatch policies is not to remove info (especially info with references) unless there is a compelling reason -- which you should explain on the article's "discussion" page.

I also added tags to mark where references should be added (help here would be appreciated!), and put double brackets (creating internal links) around all names in the article.
