CBMC attorney discusses tort reform and job creation

Taking away rights doesn't create jobs. A Caroselli, Beachler & Coleman attorney would like to discuss Lawrence J. McQuillan's claim that Pennsylvania needs to change its tort laws to bring back jobs. The attorney believes McQuillan's judgment is a shallow attempt to use the current economy to blow up our civil justice system.

The study cites no methodology or basis for its results. He ignores statistics from our own Supreme Court that lawsuits filed as a result of medical malpractice are dramatically down, as are the award amounts. Procedural rule changes adopted by the court and the statutory changes enacted by the General Assembly have made a huge difference.

McQuillan and his Pacific Research Institute do not care about jobs. They are seeking to gain immunity for the corporations who fund them. They want to cap Seventh Amendment rights and push other proposals to shift the responsibility of harm caused by their paymasters to the taxpayer.

We need a strong civil justice system with full accountability to protect society from tainted food and other products from China. If Mr. McQuillan's socialized justice creates jobs, why are flocks of Texas oil workers now finding jobs in Pennsylvania, when Texas has adopted the exact restrictions his California-based think tank wants us to adopt?

Tort reform doesn't work. Jobs are created by a strong economy and a safe work force, and not by taking away our constitutional rights.
