Via Reason's Dave Weigel we learn of this Madison Record story which begins thusly: "To spiff up its image, the Association of Trial Lawyers of America is considering changing its name to the American Association for Justice."
One respnse to the potentially triumphant new name:
"If a shark called itself a kitten fish I would still not put my daughter in to play with it," said Victor Schwartz, president of the American Tort Reform Association.
Sharks, apparently, need a new PR agency. When you're being compared to trial lawyers, it's fair to say the image has taken a bit of a hit. Conversely, I also believe kitten fish should stop whining and learn to snag their own multi-million dollar settlements.
