Editorial Reviews

Review

"The great American civil justice system -- a major pillar of our democracy -- is under relentless assault by the corporate wrongdoers' lobby. "Blocking the Courthouse Door" irrefutably exposes their power, money, lies, and propaganda geared to destroying judicial justice for wrongfully injured people. This book educates and activates fighting back." -- Ralph Nader

""Blocking the Courthouse Door" is a must-read for every American. Mencimer makes the case with power and merit that unless we act, one of the fundamental tenets of our liberty -- access to justice -- may not survive this generation. " -- Jan Schlichtmann, plaintiffs' lawyer in Jonathan Harr's "A Civil Action"

"Mencimer's book is a tonic for anyone who's ever heard the words 'tort reform' and lapsed into a guilty stupor. "Blocking the Courthouse Door" deftly illustrates how the big business and big government that fuel and feed litigation reform have -- surprise -- also reaped all the benefits of litigation reform. Mencimer proves that scrupulous legal reporting can result in an accessible page-turner. She reminds us that if we turn a blind eye while they're robbing the little guy of his day in court, the courts become a playground for the big guy." -- Dahlia Lithwick, senior and legal correspondent, "Slate"

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Malpractice and Civil Lawsuits are a subject that I have only become acquainted with due to events in my families life. I learned about this book by watching the documentary Hot Coffee on Netflix. I was excited to learn more and ordered this book while watching the documentary. When I started reading it however I found that moving from one page to the next would take me to a completely unrelated page. I would be in the middle of one sentence, go to the next page to continue it and find myself reading completely unrelated text.

Either buy the hard copy or wait until they fix this problem before wasting your money on the Kindle version of this book.
