legal reform

The Consumer Choice Center supports reform of the tort law system in the United States.

Overall, this is much progress when it comes to reform of the criminal justice system. At the same time, abuse in tort law has led to massive harm for consumers and citizens, resulting in bogus lawsuits and payouts that lead to higher costs to both taxpayers and consumers. We believe there should be just as much focus on legal reform when it comes to tort law as criminal justice.

The primary tools by which we’ve spread this message include written opinion articles in major media, press releases, social media campaigns and graphics, radio and TV interviews, organization of grassroots events, and written submissions to governmental authorities.

We’ve heard from consumers that want sensible legal reform, want to ensure the legal system is used for legitimate purposes: righting civil wrongs.

Overall, we advocate for reforms that will help citizens and consumers benefit from a juster and more equitable legal system.

Important points:

  • Frivolous lawsuits raise costs for consumers
  • Consumers are being hosed, milked, and misled by ambulance-chasing big-city lawyers
  • Lawyers are putting out misleading information to boost their bogus lawsuit payouts and consumers are forced to pay higher prices

We recommend:

  • Capping the payments from exorbitant and often bogus lawsuits
  • Actually defining who can be a defendant in class action cases
  • Bringing legitimate science into the courtroom
