Lawyers Group Asks New Administration To Limit Preemption Regulations
The American Association for Justice, a trial lawyers group, has asked the Obama administration to reverse Bush-era regulations that “preempted” the right of U.S. to hold wrongdoers accountable through the civil justice system.
“AAJ has outlined five key steps that will restore the traditional balance between federal regulation and state-based consumer protections and ensure injured Americans have access to the courts when injured by negligence or misconduct,” according to a press release on the AAJ site.
Said AAJ Senior Vice President for Public Affairs Linda Lipsen, “The efforts to give negligent corporations complete immunity, escape accountability, and leave Americans without any recourse has gone too far and must be reversed.”
