As the host of the weekly podcast Speaking of Justice, which is a featured broadcast on The Legal Broadcast Network, I am able to break out of some of the constraints on topics and issues to cover and start examining important trends in the US justice system, civil courts, rights to jury trial and threats to individual liberty. This weeks conversation examines the recent trend in mass torts and class actions by defendants to quickly move companies into bankruptcy court when they have a huge potential loss, thus short circuiting the MDL process and potentially impeding recoveries for injury victims.
