In Praise of Litigation

Alexandra Lahav

  • Takes the counterintuitive argument that lawsuits are good for society and needed in a democracy
  • Argues that most critiques of the state of litigiousness in America today are based not on facts, but on anecdotes and that most tort reform proposals will simply make it harder for citizens to fight for their rights
  • Defends the many democratic benefits of lawsuits while not ignoring the drawbacks of a litigious society
