While just about everyone agrees that we?ve become a lawsuit nation, is it really class actions by a coterie of private trial lawyers whose enormous settlements and, in Karl Rove?s words, ?junk lawsuits? that are subverting democracy? Thomas Geoghegan, whom Time called ?a modern-day Quixote of the legal profession,? thinks not.
In this impassioned rebuttal to Philip K. Howard?s The Death of Common Sense, Geoghegan deftly shows how conservatives? dismantling of America?s postwar legal system opened the floodgates of litigation. Most often people sue, he argues, because of what they have lost?contract rights, pensions, health insurance, decent medical care, and strong unions. Without these methods of preempting and resolving disputes, Americans who face injury, bankruptcy, discrimination, or injustice are left with no recourse but the lawsuit.
Both smart and provocative, See You in Court shows why the right is wrong about the source of our lawsuit culture and points the way back to civil society.
