The West Virginia Record, the pro-business, Chamber of Commerce funded, publication reports that the U .S. Chamber of Commerce's Institute for Legal Reform on Wednesday proposed a new code of conduct for state attorneys general.
The Chamber has directed its ire for some time against lawyers representing those who are injured, and now they have spread their net to influence the manner in which the chief law enforcement officer in a state should operate. Interesting, and worrisome for those who need protection.
The key to all this is the administration of justice, justice for all. And, the purported fair sounding name of a political action special interest group such as the Institute for Legal Reform (ILR) does not mask its real intention of protecting insurance and big business, period.
The timing of this story is of interest to us in Kentucky as we are about to vote for our next Attorney General. Stan Lee has already positioned himself as a pro-business advocate; and Jack Conway has indicated his concerns for all citizens and cosumers in the Commonwealth.
