On August 25, 2011, in Auto Accident, Community, Insurance, by K. Lindsay Rakers

Today’s media continues its campaign to attack trial attorneys (the lawyers who represent the injured) and the actual injured. Of course, the folks responsible for spreading the lies and generalizations about trial attorneys and plaintiffs tend to shed their beliefs when they are injured or when a family member has been wronged.

The words of Joe Solmonese, President of the HRC
We’ve come to expect GOP candidates to call for a hateful constitutional amendment banning marriage equality. But we never expected them to support forming a commission to investigate pro-equality advocates like you and me.
