Description

An American Enterprise investigation of the United States' legal system reveals that "money-minded attorneys" are using their capital and political power to influence state and federal legislation and to "tear down traditional walls to litigation." "This process feeds on itself to deepen the circle of influence and corruption. Through their political donations... trial lawyers in some states will 'be able to completely control the elected judiciary and be able to pick and choose the places they want to sue and blackmail industries into settlement.'" American Enterprise attempts to explain how the legal system has become corrupt and offers some solutions to the problems.
