Krauss on Litigation Financing and Ethics

Michael Krauss (George Mason) has posted to SSRN Alternate Dispute Financing and Legal Ethics:  Free the Lawyers!.  The abstract provides:

As is the case for many of our entitlements, our rights of action are protected by a less-than-full property rule. As a result, financing of litigation has been limited. The recent rise of alternate dispute financing has raised serious ethical problems. In this Article, I discuss those problems, dismiss some (but not all) of them, and suggest that pushing the protection of our entitlement to sue closer to a property rule might alleviate those problems that remain.
