Statement from AAJ President Kathleen Flynn Peterson on ATRA's Latest Attack on Civil Justice Attorneys
Date:1/10/2008

Peterson: 'How Can Anyone Take these Groups Seriously When They Release Studies Based on a Methodology of Google Searches?'

WASHINGTON, Jan. 10 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ --- The American Tort Reform Association's (ATRA) and the Center for Medicine in the Public Interest's (CMPI) so-called study on legal websites is laughable at best. ATRA and CMPI should be ashamed to issue a report whose dubious methodology consists of nothing but Google searches.

Follow the money for this study: tort reform group Pacific Research Institute (PRI) funds CMPI, which shares an executive with a PR firm that represents major pharmaceutical manufacturers. It's no surprise that the big drug-makers are trying to buy studies to avoid responsibility for their drugs that have harmed people.

The sham study even tries to take down an article in the widely-respected New England Journal of Medicine.

ATRA claims that tort lawyers are putting the health and lives of Americans at risk. Don't you think the fact that the pharmaceutical industry spends nearly twice as much on promotion than it does on research is much more harmful to Americans?
