Another Poorly Written Tort Reform Bill

For Independence Day, why not read about another affront to the civil justice system, this one via a bill sponsored by Texas Republican Lamar Smith? There is a good article on the dangers of the bill over at law.com. It is amazing that the bill not only attacks a nonexistant problem, but does so with all the precision of a drunken sumo wrestler in high heels. It’s like trying to kill a housefly with a shotgun.
