Runaway Juries or Runaway Urban Myth?

Friday, September 23rd, 2011

Our friends at Keene Trial Consultants posted a good recap of this important issue. From the post:

“Despite the constant headlines about frivolous lawsuits and ridiculously high awards, when the GAO came out with a report on lawsuit awards back in 2003, it received little fanfare even though it strongly contradicted media reports of excessive jury awards….This time it’s a report from the Center for Justice and Democracy, a nonprofit consumer group. The Center uses data from the Department of Justice and other sources to point out that juries seldom award punitive damages in addition to compensatory awards….”

New Fundraiser for American Assoication for Justice

Friday, September 16th, 2011

As seen on Reuters, Yahoo Finance and Market Watch and other media outlets.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

How David Beats Goliath

A Fundraiser for the American Association for Justice’s Seventh Amendment Fund

Michael J. Swanson, author of How David Beats Goliath: Access to Capital for Contingent –Fee Law Firms, has initiated a fundraiser for the American Association for Justice’s Seventh Amendment Fund.

The fundraiser will begin on Wednesday, September 14 and end Wednesday, September 28. For every new “like” on the How David Beats Goliath Facebook Page a dollar will be donated to this AAJ fund. Contributions to this fund help provide the resources needed to protect the civil justice system and every American’s right to a trial by jury. *Mr. Swanson has also generously committed to donate all profits from sales of the book to this worthy cause.

Industry veteran Michael J. Swanson, the President and Chief Executive Officer of Advocate Capital, Inc., has written a definitive, common-sense book that explains how contingent-fee law firm funding works, who provides it, what it costs, and how law firms can acquire and use it efficiently.

The new book How David Beats Goliath: Access to Capital for Contingent Fee Law Firms addresses a little-known but critical flaw in America’s system of justice. Average citizens who have been injured or wronged through negligence or malfeasance are guaranteed their day in court. In practice, however, this bedrock legal right is often compromised.

More information is available at www.HowDavidBeatsGoliath.com, including a free sample chapter of the book, links to online bookstores and more information about the author, Michael J. Swanson.

*The views expressed in this book are not necessarily representative of the views held by AAJ. Furthermore, the donation of profits from the sales of the books to the Seventh Amendment Fund does not imply that AAJ has endorsed Advocate Capital, Inc. or the book and the views and information contained therein.
