It isn't every day that tort reformers and personal-injury lawyers find themselves in agreement. But when the American Association for Justice (formerly known as the Association of Trial Lawyers of America) recently joined the American Tort Reform Association and small-business owners everywhere in condemning an outrageous and seemingly vengeful lawsuit against a neighborhood dry-cleaning store, a rare opportunity for nonpartisan legal reform may have presented itself.
As lawmakers take these suggested reforms under advisement, the D.C. Bar Association and D.C.'s Commission on Tenure and Appointment of Administrative Law Judges (the bodies with a say in whether Mr. Pearson will keep his law-judge job) may wish to consider the advice of Melvin Welles, former chief administrative law judge at the National Labor Relations Board.
