Check out…

...Eric Turkewitz's New York Personal Injury Law Blog coverage of the growing number of attorneys and legal groups out in California that are offering to extend free legal services to fire victims. Read about it here.

...And relatedly, the TortBurger blog covering insurance and the So Cal fires versus insurance and Katrina.

...Also today's ACS Blog which has a few interesting entries, including: further scrutiny for Mukasey, Genarlow Wilson has been released (more on this here), and a study showing that the Supreme Court might be more friendly to veterans of the Court.

...And last but certainly not least, DMI Blog's read on how FedEx Corporation has deliberately misclassified its Ground drivers as “independent contractors” in an effort to fatten its bottom line and circumvent federal anti-discrimination laws. Yikes. Read it here.

It seems incredibly premature for law firms to be soliciting business from the Southern California fires (yes I know they are calling it "fre legal services" but you know that all of these firms are hoping to find a huge pot full of gold - it's ALWAYS about money with plaintiff firms - justice has NEVER been part of the equation)

I suspect that the biggest problem will be that customers tried to save money by underinsuring, never dreaming that they could lose everything

What else will one never hear at your bogus conference? Extend the benefits of torts to the negligent, incompetent lawyer farce that is the criminal law.

End all self-dealt, and unlawful immunities of the cult criminals in control of the three branches of government. If the judge, the prosecutor, or defense attorney deviate from professional standards of due care by convicting an innocent person, let them pay from personal assets, or force them to carry personal professional liability insurance. They are not the voice of God. The total incompetence of these idiots has only one solution, torts liability.

Let me know if anyone brought up that remedy.

Dennis, I guess with you it's ALWAYS about assumptions that help you demonize plaintiffs' lawyers and NEVER about recognizing the danger in spouting off (blatantly false and ignorant) absolutes. Come on, usually your critique has some originality but this is pretty bad. I don't see how "free" is anything but crystal clear? FREE legal services = FREE legal services. Period.
