If you haven’t checked out the Manhattan Institute’s “Trial Lawyers, Inc.” series, you should.
The series, and its new report, discusses the sometimes suspect relationships between state attorneys general and plaintiffs lawyers.
The new Trial Lawyers, Inc. report looks at the campaign contributions of state AGs and then the instances where those state AGs have turned to trial lawyers on a contingency fee basis. In laymen’s terms, trial lawyers are profiting off of lawsuits on behalf of the states.
Attorney General association – specifically the Democratic Attorneys General Association – is funded heavily by the large law firms.
