Asking For It?

Excellent, thoughtful article in The American Lawyer on the precipitous decline in power and influence of plaintiff's lawyers, and why it may well be the fault (at least in part) of overly greedy mass-tort lawyers who grew fat and happy on asbestos litigation in the 1990's. Hat tip to The Tortellini.
