Pro Te: Solutio - Vol. 8 No. 5

Butler Snow LLP

The Spring 2016 issue of Pro Te Solutio deals head-on with issues that are driving litigation in this modern era. And as it is with many issues, there are two sides to every story.

The first topic we wrangle involves the heart (or soul?) of mass tort practice: massive-scale funding of litigation. In “Funding Litigation and Treatment: Leveling the playing field or exploiting the little guy?”, we look at both sides of the issue. Does the real-world practice of funding litigation rightly serve the greater good, by assisting individuals who might never realistically be able to prosecute a case—or does the process, instead, taint the entire system with unethical outside influences that drive up the cost of litigation—and in turn making reasonable settlements out of reach? This article grapples with the two sides of this coin, and addresses the lack of regulation in this arena.
