Manhattan Institute Allies Keep Heat on Pay-to-Play Attorneys General

ATRA’s allies at the Manhattan Institute’s Center for Legal Policy have published their latest edition of Trial Lawyers, Inc., this time examining the increasingly troubling relationships between many state attorneys general and their personal injury lawyer political patrons.

In an op-ed in the Washington Examiner, center director Jim Copland summarizes the TLI report: 

“America’s plaintiffs’ bar, which we at the Manhattan Institute have dubbed Trial Lawyers, Inc., has found a new cash cow in state-sponsored litigation parceled out by the nation’s state attorneys general.Most state AGs are dependent on campaign cash — 43 of the 50 states elect their attorneys general — and they have increasingly turned to trial attorneys who profit handsomely by suing for the states.”
