Tonight on HBO

That's right.   Torts - tonight on HBO.   From Meredith Miller at Contracts Prof Blog comes word of a new documentary premiering tonight on HBO:  "Hot Coffee."    As you can guess from the title, the show uses the ubiquitous "hot coffee" case of Stella Liebeck (previously discussed here and here by Mike Rustad) as a lens to view topics of tort reform, judicial elections, and mandatory arbitration.   Unlike the typical use of the Liebeck case, however, the film makers uses it to emphasize the plaintiffs' point of view.

Tort Reform is a legal weapon used Texas to kill Texans.

When there are laws on the books preventing the common man from getting accountability, no telling what will happen.

Providing a link to a video showing how Tort Teform is working out in Texas, or not.
