Barbour Celebrates Legislation Anniversary -- Let's See, You're Supposed to Give Cotton on the Second Anniversary

Haley Barbour, governor of Mississippi, went on a "whirlwind tour" (Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal) yesterday to celebrate the two-year anniversary of the passage of various liability modifications.  As with another recent Mississippi story, Barbour and his allies attribute the legislation with reducing frivolous suits rather than focusing on the more direct effect of reducing overall exposure in both frivolous and nonfrivolous suits, and that story doesn't do much to question the cause-and-effect he suggests.  The Hattiesburg American story does a better job covering the various factors.
