Do As I Say, Not As I Sue: Exposing the Lawsuit-Happy Hypocrites of the U.S. Chamber’s Institute for Legal Reform

October 28, 2011

Would you be surprised to learn that there is a powerful force working every day to limit your access to the legal system?  It is the same force working to convince the American people that all lawsuits filed against corporations are frivolous and take away American jobs.  If you’ve heard propaganda like this, chances are it was funded by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce; specifically, the powerful corporations that make up its Institute for Legal Reform (ILR).

In an eye-opening new report called Do As I Say, Not As I Sue, the American Association for Justice (AAJ) exposes the hypocrisy of 10 of the largest and most influential members of the ILR.  These are companies that regularly use the legal system to advance their own agendas (often through lawsuits that would be judged as frivolous by any standard), while at the same time advocating legislation that would close the courthouse doors to anyone seeking to hold them accountable for their own wrongdoing.  It is hypocrisy at its worst.

If you’d like to hear the full story, and not just the version the Chamber of Commerce has paid for you to hear, we encourage you to take a look at the AAJ’s report.
