The title of a recent US Chamber of Commerce spam email says it all, "Terror by Trial Lawyer." Not only do they denigrate a profession with a long noble history that goes to the core of what it means to be American, the Chamber also feels it necessary to out and out lie. "LIARS at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce" should be the title. Their spam email is an attempt to undermine legislation, introduced by a Republican, that is designed to restore Notice Pleading in our federal courts after recent rulings left attorney and judges uncertain on the rule of law. The big companies profiteering do not like it (KBR, Blackwater, Halliburton) so the Chamber lies for them and tells you the legislation will allow terrorists to sue our Navy SEALS. This total fabrication assumes you are ignorant and that you do not want to know the true content or purpose of the legislation.
Don't let them get away with it. Go read the bill (the Notice Pleading Restoration Act of 2009) and then write your elected officials to denounce these scare tactics.
