Anonymous commenter sums up tort “reform” movement
The comment below was posted to an article about a $257 million dollar jury verdict:
The award will get thrown out in appeals, any civil jury in Opelousas will consist mostly of people who never saw a paycheck in their lives and have no clue about money.
This guy sums up the tort “reform” movement. They’re pissed off that people who don’t make a lot of money get to hold people accountable who do make a lot of money.
In the America that I live in, every citizen is equal in the eyes of the law. That means that a jury of poor people is no better or worse than a jury of rich people. I guess this guy lives in a different America.
Oh, crap. I hope I didn’t just summon John Edwards’ “two Americas” theme.
