Helping Trial Lawyers Navigate the Appellate System

Tort Reformers Address Baylor Survey

In this post, I asked how “tort reformers” are responding to the Baylor Law Review-sponsored survey of Texas judges, which has been championed as helping to “clear the air” about the state of our court system.  In a commentary recently published in the San Antonio Express-News, Austin lawyer Lee Parsley does just that.  In addition, Texans for Lawsuit Reform has issued a press release (picked up by MSNBC) touting the Parsley article.  Parsley and TLR read the Baylor study much differently than previous commentators, contending that it actually shows a need for further lawsuit reform.
