A frivolous defense
A well-funded front group for wealthy special interests has regurgitated false claims that lawsuits are responsible for hurting business and driving unemployment (“It’s Lawsuit Abuse Awareness Week”). Unfortunately, this newspaper’s presented a one-sided perspective without the true and accurate facts that readers need to make informed judgments.
Travis Akin, the face of front group I-LAW, conveniently avoided the fact that more than 70 percent of lawsuits are filed by his very own financial supporters – businesses suing businesses for money. Injury cases make up just 6 percent of all lawsuits.
I-LAW’s backers do not want to get sued for their wrongdoing, and they put profits before protecting people from serious injuries. They are brazenly trying to scare citizens into giving up their constitutional right to hold negligent drivers, polluters, careless professionals and reckless manufacturers responsible for their dangerous actions.
