Letter to the Editor: Verdicts on our coverage of trial lawyers

Business Week
Monday, February 19, 2001

The premise of your story runs counter to everything we know about the civil-justice system. Corporate defendants and their insurance companies cause legal costs to spiral by refusing to take responsibility for their misconduct and covering up documents.

With corporate money having already bought the executive and legislative branches of government, America's court system is one place where individuals can force changes in the dangerous behavior of powerful industries and prevent future harm.

It's a system of which we should be incredibly proud.
