What do EJR and JEI mean by "liability"?

Thu, 08/02/2012 - 16:35 -- lwheeler

EJR and JEI do not mean simply manufacturers' and merchants' liability, or product liability. The "expansion of liability" means that all of us are more and more vulnerable to being sued for an ever greater array of causes. Judge-made law has made employers, school teachers, other professionals, school boards, towns and counties, churches and voluntary associations, our colleges and universities, neighbors and schoolmates, caregivers, physicians and pharmacists more likely to have their activities and decisions second-guessed by lawyers and to be dragged into litigation.
