God, I hate it when I'm right: In the wake of the ABA endorsement of legislation to limit asbestos related lawsuits, guess what gets filed in the Senate? Yep. A bill to limit asbestos related lawsuits. As an example of the intellectual dishonesty of the proponents, Senate Budget Chairman and bill sponsor Don Nickles said
There is no question asbestos litigation is a serious deterrent to economic growth.

Now, asbestos litigation has been going on for 20 years. I didn't see much problem with economic growth during the Clinton Administration. Now, when it's convenient, it's a deterrent to growth. So, in the spirit of tort limitation that's trying to take the nation by storm, here comes yet another bill that would slam the courthouse doors in the faces of people injured by asbestos exposure. Way to serve the people, Don!
