Tuesday's Election Results and Litigation Reform.

What About Clients? supports most litigation, tort or judicial reforms which would curtail or eliminate "junk" science, junk cases, junk judges, you get idea. WAC? has flirted with and briefly went steady--perhaps wrongly--with the UK "loser pays" rule. We've stopped short of advocating blue ribbon juries, an un-American idea, granted. But we do support organizations which envision that, some day, no American state court judge may be popularly elected but instead each is appointed based chiefly on merit by people who understand the difference between a great lawyer/jurist and a white-trash dingbat with a law degree who needs a job. Americans need much better judges, especially on the state benches. But I digress. So just see "What Does Yesterday [November 7] Mean for the Litigation-Reform Crowd?" by Peter Lattman over at the WSJ Law Blog and especially Peter's jumping off point, the election roundtable at Point of Law.
