JUDGES, TORT REFORM, AND YOUR RIGHTS
Discussed by Ware Wendell
with Texas Watch (www.TexasWatch.org)


Part 1 of 3

Who should you listen to? The lawyers? Big Business? Big Insurance Companies? The Lobbyists for big business and the insurance companies?

Ware Wendell, with Texas Watch, has served as the Legislative Aide to a senior member of the Texas House and Chief of Staff in the Texas Senate, enabling him to work on legislation of statewide importance and giving him insights into the workings of the Texas Capitol.

Today, Ware discusses a survey  by the Baylor College of Law concerning Tort Reform and frivolous lawsuits. The main objective: Was Tort Reform really necessary?

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Has Texas long recognized the right to a trial by jury as one of our citizens’ most precious rights?

Who began the push for Tort Reform? Ware Wendell shares a brief history going back to 1971…

Have two home builders in Texas (David Weekly and Perry Homes) funded Tort Reform through financial donations to candidates for decades? Ware reveals how these two companies actually formed the Texas Residential Construction Commission to fight home owners’ claims against their construction companies…



PART 2 OF 3 - JUDGES, TORT REFORM, AND YOUR RIGHTS
Discussed by Ware Wendell
with Texas Watch (www.TexasWatch.org)

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Baylor College of Law is one of the top law schools in the country. The professors are well-known and respected. Ware Wendell is still discussing the survey they sent to Judges across the state.

Did responding judges say they are still seeing too many frivolous lawsuits? Or are they reporting the opposite?

Question for YOU: If you or a loved one was injured or died due to medical malpractice, what would you do? Step aside and let the doctor/insurance company get away with it? Or would you sue?
