An ABA four-story package examines the new developments in tort law, and how they have influenced the work of civil justice institutions. The first story looks at the battles over tort legislation, and describes how different states have implemented the changes. The report quotes a 1993 study by the Coalition for Consumer Rights, which has indicated that states with the lowest per capita expenditures on medical care are more likely to have enacted the fewest tort reforms overall. The second story reveals that lawyers are changing their litigation strategies in response to the new tort law. The third story reports on the risks that await both plaintiff and defense lawyers. The fourth story features lawyers' opinions expressed during a round table debate on tort law. "The debate goes beyond tort law, it's about lawyers," the magazine finds.
