In the wake of the Illinois Supreme Court decision closing the door, at least part way, by striking down a $1 Billion dollar verdict obtained "over there" in the county famous for the Sauget Ballet and venue shopping, the esteemed (listed in Best Lawyers in America) plaintiff's attorney, Rex Carr, reacted calmly and eloquently to the ruling by saying about the American Tort Reform Association who has been pushing for this type of decision:
“They (ATRA) (American Tort Reform Association) must be drinking Benzene. They are in the pay of the Chamber of Commerce to spread the big lie and to restrict poor victims from getting what they deserve.
"They (ATRA) are drunks and dopeheads."
Such reasoning is indeed hard to argue with and one can see why Mr. Carr enjoys the esteem of Democrats everywhere.
