As a child, Catherine Crier was enchanted by film portrayals of crusading lawyers like Clarence Darrow and Atticus Finch. As a District Attorney, private lawyer, and judge, she saw firsthand how the U.S. Justice system worked, and when it didn't. One of the most respected legal journalists, she confronts an unfair legal system that produces profits for the few, and frustration and injustice for the many. The Case Against Lawyers is both an angry indictment and eloquent plea for a return to common sense. It decries a system of laws so complex that even their enforcers cannot understand them. It unmasks a litigation-crazed society where billion-dollar judgments mostly line the pockets of personal injury lawyers. It deplores regulatory stupidity, such as warning labels on strollers reading "remove child before folding." This book will make readers hopping mad, and may make them realize the only response is to demand change. Now!
