LRANY Executive Director’s Statement on the Empire Center’s New York Tort Liability Report

Albany, NY – “This report is a catalogue of the damage decades of trial lawyer rule has done to New York’s civil justice system. From Sheldon Silver’s ‘of counsel’ shenanigans, to courts stacked with cronies, to class action chaos – and the insanity of the Scaffold Law – this report shows how entrenched the trial lawyers’ special interests are in New York. And the report nails it on the head, by simply putting New York’s rules in line with most other states we could save billions. Governor Cuomo and the legislature should take notice of the commonsense reforms outlined in this report and put a stop to the taxpayers’ subsidy of the lawsuit industry.”

–Tom Stebbins, Executive Director, Lawsuit Reform Alliance of New York
