Battle of the Tort Reform Flicks

A few weeks ago, I mentioned Hot Coffee on HBO, which presented a plaintiff-friendly perspective on topics of tort reform, judicial elections and mandatory arbitration.

Now, InJustice presents a more-defense oriented point of view and focuses on mass torts and class actions.   Daniel Fisher at Forbes has a critique of the film.

I haven't seen "InJustice" yet, but "Hot Coffee" was completely one-sided. It probably doesn't bode well for objectivity that (according to Fisher) no plaintiffs' lawyer appears in the film. It would be too bad if this is as biased as "Hot Coffee" was, especially since there really is enough Lerach-style conduct out there that you shouldn't need to make a propaganda piece to generate some outrage.
