Litigation Project Detail

Reining in the Plaintiffs' Bar
WLF opposes litigation tactics by activists and plaintiffs' lawyers that undermine the integrity of the judicial process. Many of the problems with the civil litigation system in the U.S. can be traced to plaintiffs' lawyers filing too many frivolous cases, and then demanding excessive attorney fees as the price for dropping their claims. WLF has litigated to ensure that court-awarded fees are kept within reasonable limits, that public funds are not used to support unwarranted litigation, and that appropriate sanctions are imposed on attorneys who file frivolous suits or otherwise abuse the public trust.
