Letter: Meritless lawsuits cost time, money

In case you missed it, the Baton Rouge Advocate recently published a letter by LLAW Executive Director Melissa Landry on the cost of meritless litigation.

In response to a misleading column written by leftist James Gill, Landry wrote, “‘Plaintiff’ is most certainly not a dirty word. Obviously, when businesses and individuals are responsible for causing damage or injuries, they should be held accountable. The problem arises when litigation is motivated by greed rather than merit. And there is ample evidence to suggest we have more than our fair share of that in Louisiana — thus the need for reform.”
