Update: ABA Resolution on State Court Funding Ignores One Effective Solution

We read with some regret the story from this morning’s National Law Journal, Boies and Olson’s latest campaign: Stanching the hemorrhaging at state courts, which reported on the passage of a resolution in the American Bar Association’s House of Delegates “urging state bar associations and other local bar groups to document the effects of budget cuts and argue for more money.”

Sadly, our friends at the ABA ignored the suggestion of our Chairman, Dan Popeo, in his May 11 Legal Pulse post, Cash-Strapped State Courts Remedy: A Litigation Excise Tax? We know, raising taxes is not a popular subject right now, but shouldn’t those who make so much money from using America’s overburdened court system give a little back?
