Litigation Project Detail

Civil Justice Reform
WLF litigates and advocates to restore balance to the nation's civil justice system and to protect the rights and interests of consumers. WLF works in both the courts and the regulatory agencies to cut down on frivolous lawsuits, oppose overreaching by regulators and plaintiffs’ attorneys in antitrust cases, rein in improper testimony by hired-gun expert witnesses, support preemption of state tort claims where mandated under federal law, and cut down on litigation abuses generally.
