Robert A. Levy: Author of Shakedown: How Corporations, Government, and Trial Lawyers Abuse the Judicial Process May 05, 2005
A PROPERLY FUNCTIONING tort system helps those who have been harmed receive a measure of justice. But, as Robert A. Levy argues in Shakedown, the American tort system has become a mechanism by which politicians extract "damages" from targeted industries on behalf of favored interest groups. Shakedown exposes these and other abuses of America's judicial system and recommends overhauling tort and antitrust laws through reforms that are compatible with the principles of federalism and a limited government. Join us for this important and timely discussion of the tort system. Reception to follow.
