May the Courthouse Doors Always Remain Open

I read this article on Sunday and was amazed at how much is spent by big business to try to close the courthouse doors to the injured or wronged (it's on page 2 of the article). In fact, I was shocked. A jury is an integral part of our civil justice system; and big business wants to limit a jury's right to decide a matter and the remedy that can be provided. (As a reminder, one of the reasons we declared our independence from England was because we had been denied the right to a jury trial in some instances.)

I'm fond of saying there are no Atheists in foxholes, and there are no injured persons who are pro-tort deform.

Yes, I am biased. I think American citizens should have the right to decide when another has been injured or wronged, and to determine the amount of damages incurred. Others do not agree with me (as can be determined by reading the article). You make up your own mind on the issue.

Here's the link:

May the Courthouse Doors ALWAYS remain open to those who have been injured or wronged.
