Torts and Tort Reform - Dixon Gahnz

Whereas business litigation and contract disputes are increasing in number, lawsuits filed by individuals has either remained level or decreased over the past years.

Business Trumps Consumer Rights...Again - Kent Carnell
Attorney Kent Carnell discusses the 2011 Wisconsin Act 2 that made changes to the product liability laws in Wisconsin. Previously, the law held that it was better for the industry that created a problem (injury) to pay rather than have society have to pay. The new law puts the burden on consumers. He explains that Senate Bill 373, which was recently passed, applies this law retroactively. So, even those injured prior to the passage of this law and those cases that have already been put in suit prior to the enactment of the law are affected.

Hot Coffee Discussion with Dixon Gahnz and Sly
The Hot Coffee documentary uncovers campaign to limit your rights. Attorney Dixon Gahnz discusses three myths: 1) Injury lawsuits are out of control, 2) Damage caps work, and 3) Judicial elections are all fair. The truth is that tort (personal injury) filings have been dropping, accounting for less than 5 percent of all civil caseloads in a 2008 seven-state study. Yet, contract cases most often filed by businesses now hog more than 50 percent of the court docket. Regarding damage caps, capping damages on medical malpractice cases does nothing to hold down health care costs, while deaths and serious inuries from medical mistakes continue to occur at alarming rates. The truth about judicial elections is that the U.S. Chamber of Commerce spent "nearly $35 million" in 2008 on pro-business candidates, including state Supreme Court judges, and was ranked first among "Super Spenders" on state judicial elections, 2000 to 2009.
