Some members of Georgia’s civil defense bar are crying foul over a television commercial for plaintiffs’ personal injury firm Morgan & Morgan, arguing that the ad might constitute jury tampering under legal rules governing the information jurors are allowed to hear.

The commercial features Morgan firm partner Matt Morgan, telling viewers he’s “going to tell you something the insurance companies don’t want you to know. In almost all of our car crash cases, the person who caused the crash has insurance but the jury is never allowed to know. I don’t think that’s fair. You might feel sorry for the at-fault driver because you think they will have to pay, but the insurance company pays for that driver’s lawyers, court costs and the verdict. Spread the word. Now you know.”
