WHO IS LOOKING OUT FOR YOU??

As we prepare for another Presidential election, barely a day goes by without hearing a mastermind plan to fix the country's problems from a Presidential hopeful, or long shot. The problems facing our country are too enormous to be easily fixed and the political rhetoric is difficult to tolerate. That being said, it is beyond disturbing that politicians willingly and knowingly distort facts and lie in order to keep their political money flowing. Despite the economic collapse over the past several years, the facts are that the rich have been getting richer while things keep getting worse for the poor, the downtrodden, the unemployed. The folks picketing Wall Street and corporate headquarters do have a legitimate point. Can the middle class ever be restored without meaningful financial and corporate reform? We will probably find out in a few years because corporate America understands the game of public opinion. Corporate America has the insight to fool the American public and the money to peddle their snake oil. The deception of the American public is so outlandish as to be criminal. A simple review of an issue near and dear to our hearts here at Rosen Louik & Perry provides a frightening illustration.

FAIR SHARE ACT - FAIR TO WHO?

On June 28, 2011, Pennsylvania Governor Corbett signed into law the Fair Share Act ("Senate Bill 1131"), which represents a significant shift in tort liability law in Pennsylvania. Under the Fair Share Act, when liability is attributed to more than one defendant, each defendant found to be less than 60% liable is responsible for only its proportionate share of the liability (with certain exceptions noted below). Five defendants found 20% liable would each be responsible for 20% of the verdict regardless of the ability to pay.

A Cup of Coffee... Was McDonald's Coffee Case Unreasonable?

Millions of Americans start their day with a cup of coffee and some pay outrageous prices for their morning fix. My law school roommate went through a pound of coffee a week. Being on a tight, student budget, I often indulged as well since there was rarely anything else to drink in the apartment. I drank so much coffee that I honestly lost the attraction to do it.
