Lawyers vs. lawyers

The opening of the Arkansas Bar Association's annual convention this year ended with a grand party as lawyers got a lot of play money to flash around as they pretended to go to the races. But there was a lot of real money at stake once the assembled counselors switched to debating the fate of Issue 1 on this state's ballot come the general election slated for November.

So, who's money is behind Issue 1? The nursing home lobby, for one. Mike Morton, who was involved in the Maggio bribery mess is a bug mucky-muck in that lobby. Morton, et al, want their liability to be limited and to set the rules for when they can be sued. Bob Ballinger is in their back pocket and has already tried to prevent you from having a jury trial, but he failed, thank God.Lawyers aren't the question here. Your rights are and the rights of the most vulnerable among us. Do we really want our crooked legislature deciding these matters? When given the opportunity, they stole from us while the majority sat quietly, including our governor, and allowed the corruption. And now, they want to have the right to make the rules for our courts. Maybe they can rig it to where we have no recourse and they can steal from us without penatly or punishment. If for no other reason than the unethical behavior displayed by our current legislature, vote AGAINST ISSUE 1
