I read the Gridley opinion when it came out and I think you're right – it really wasn’t all that bad. I actually found myself agreeing with Thomas on the forum issue, and I, like yourself, am a Madison/St.Clair County plaintiffs lawyer.

What scares is the constant tone and demeanor from the court, and the notion after the 5th Dist. S. Ct. seat election that something needs to be fixed in Madison County. It’s also scary that big business’ PR campaign is working – individuals are being convinced that there is such a tort crisis that people are signing away their rights. As just an example of how much money is being spent on the other side, did you see how many amicus curiae briefs were filed for the defeandant compared to the plaintiff in Gridley? It must have been 8 to 1. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is the worst of the bunch.

I could go on, but I’m sure I’m preaching to the choir. I enjoy the blogs and podcasts.
