    Nice article. Tort reform is one of the biggest myths the insurance/corporate lobby uses to limit individuals’ access to the courts. True “conservatives” would never allow their 7th Amendment rights to be abridged. Last year, our Supreme Court in Georgia struck down caps on damages ($350k) in medical malpractice cases. These laws are typically introduced simultaneously in vulnerable state legislatures controlled by so-called “conservatives” under the guise of saving the medical profession and/or encouraging a competitive business environment. What we must remember is that an efficient free market requires a strong civil justice system. Common law tort principles are at the very foundation of many of our basic freedoms.
