The future of civil justice is best understood through the prism of tort reform. Through objective commentary, essays on both sides of the battle, articles, interest group papers, and cases, this text is ideal vehicle to comprehend this 40 year struggle. Does the tort system yield inefficient and counter-productive results (e.g., a less competitive market and higher prices), or is it that prized legal regime its supporters contend, leveling the playing field, preserving fragile rights of injured consumers? This text explores the shift in the debate, from substantive accountability to process-based changes, allowing readers to form answers to these questions and gain insights on how the tort reform tale might finally end.
