Lawsuit Abuse SeminarName: Lawsuit Abuse SeminarDate: February 12, 2018Time: 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM ESTEvent Description:
Lawsuit abuse is a major issue in New York - and it is affecting everyone.
It seems like every day there is another absurd lawsuit in the headlines. Sure, it is easy to laugh at these ridiculous cases, but the truth is no laughing matter: we are all paying for these lawsuits, especially here in New York. Lawsuit abuse affects our businesses, nonprofits, volunteer organizations, doctors and healthcare providers, local governments, and taxpayers. Frivolous and abusive lawsuits drive up the cost of goods and services, clog our courts, and stifle economic growth in our state.The Lawsuit Reform Alliance of New York (LRANY) is an Albany-based, nonprofit, non-partisan organization committed to reforming the law to reduce frivolous lawsuits. Our organization is committed to building awareness about abusive litigation, and educating New Yorkers about the antiquated and often ridiculous New York laws which encourage abuse.
