State of the Union & Tort Law

In the State of the Union address Tuesday night, President Obama indicated a willingness to work with Republicans in considering medical malpractice reforms to eliminate what he described as "frivolous" suits.  You can see some of the various coverage of the reference here, and Law.com has a discussion of the law-specific parts of the address here.  Walter Olson questions, I think reasonably, whether the Center for Justice and Democracy, may be a bit too strident in its response ("disgusting").
