Edwards Focuses (Even More) on Plaintiffs

Former Sen. John Edwards is making what he terms victims of corporate greed a more central part of his campaign.  He is now being joined on the trail by family members of a girl who died after her insurer refused to pay for a liver transplant (the insurance company denies that its decision caused her death), by the a man who, lacking health insurance, lived with a cleft palate for half a century, and by one of his former clients, whose daughter was seriously injured in a swimming pool.  (What appears to be a pretty thorough discussion of the last case is available here.)

(I gave Edwards some money in 2004 and have given him a little again this year.  My support for him is generally speaking based on non-Torts-related issues, if it matters.)
