Yes, Mr. Goldner, there are white papers on the subject, some even written by your allies among the parasitic plaintiffs' bar. But they can't begin to overcome in the minds of laymen and women the nearly daily headlines about shameless self-dealing -- including but not limited to no-injury class actions and coupon settlements, choreographed slip-and-falls and car wrecks, fraudulent asbestos claims, and the bribing of judges -- made infamous by the likes of plaintiffs' bar hall of famers Dickie Scruggs, Mel Weiss and Bill Lerach, among others.
If, as Senator Whitehouse purports, the right to a jury trial is today being squeezed, then all the personal injury lawyers who've seen fit to manipulate, abuse and defraud the civil justice system while seeking to get rich beyond their wildest dreams at the expense of consumers and taxpayers must share the blame. Because surely The Founders, who authored the Seventh Amendment, could not have foreseen, in their wildest dreams, what has become of your profession. They would be scandalized and ashamed of the selfish burden too many of your colleagues choose to impose on our commerce and individual freedoms. And, judging from public approval surveys that typically rank personal injury lawyers lower than members of Congress and used car salesmen, most modern Americans agree.

And lo and behold from whom do we hear but the American Tort Reform Association on the sanctity of the 7th amendment right to trial by jury? That's right, a shill for the casualty insurance industry pipes up with more misinformation. I'm disappointed that you forgot to haul out the myth of the McDonald's Coffee verdict.
Anyone genuinely interested in the attack on the right to trial by jury can look elsewhere than anything put out by the ATRA for a genuinely thoughtful discussion of the subject matter. There are any number of white papers on the subject and a handful of law review articles as well.
