<<Probably a lot of truth to that, just as there is a lot of truth that plaintiff's lawyers abuse tort laws.

Complete and utter nonsense. There are no legitimate parallels here. You can't provide a shred of data or evidence that these two issues are even remotely related.


Of course, your claim is bogus.

There are lots of example of plaintiff's lawyers holding up businesses in what amounts to an extortion racket. Plenty of examples, too, of platiff's lawyers shopping around for "clients" so that the lawyers control the process, not the plaintiffs.

Lots of examples of lawyers settling claims so that the lawyers benefit, with negligible benefits to "clients."

There is a variety of ways that plaintiff's l;awyers abuse their clients, courts, legal process and businesses.

And Democrats and liberals like yourselfs have been excusing that for decades.

As I say, there is very likely abuse of patent law as well. Perhaps someday Republicans and Democrats with cooperate to end some of those abuses.

I'm sure salaryguru will not be signing on to that reform though.
