March 2, 2011: Letter to the ABA Commission on Ethics
Mar 02, 2011

On Thursday, LCJ submitted a letter to the ABA Commission on Ethics urging its members to consider that an expansion of ALF, particularly in the class action arena, threatens the judicial system by upsetting the balance of power between plaintiffs and defendants, creating ethical quandaries for lawyers, increasing the potential for general abuse of the system and more.

LCJ President John H. Martin said his letter to the ABA was a strong endorsement of a stance taken last month by the U.S. Chamber Institute for Legal Reform (ILR).
