On April 14th, the Manhattan Institute’s Center for Legal Policy, in association with the Pacific Research Institute, is hosting a panel discussion and releasing a new study titled "Trial Lawyers, Inc.:  California – A new comprehensive study of the devastating impact of California’s lawsuit industry."
 
The event, scheduled from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. will feature a discussion made up of guest speakers, as well as a luncheon and keynote address by Catherine Crier, Emmy-winning host of Catherine Crier on CourtTV.  Registration is only $25 and attendees will receive a copy of the report.
 
According to the report, California’s legal system is the second most expensive legal system in the world, trailing only the United States as a whole.  Additionally, the study found that California has been losing jobs as a result of trial lawyers’ relentless attack on high-tech companies, the housing industry and businesses large and small.
