Congressman Rohrabacher Votes for Class Action Fairness Act

Feb 17, 2005

Washington, Feb 17, 2005 - “For too long we have witnessed the exploitation of our judicial system by lawyers focused on lining their pockets at the expense of the very people they purport to fight for. Class action lawsuits in which lawyers are able to shop their cases from court to court and reap huge fees while their clients receive little compensation is not a representation of justice but a disgrace to our system. Meanwhile, businesses adversely affected by these huge settlements are forced to pass these costs onto the consumer through increased prices on products and services. The Class Action Fairness Act will ensure that lawyers can no longer take advantage of the system and that settlements are fair and go to the people who have been wronged.”
