Justice for a Powerful Member of the Trial Bar

August 12, 2014

Stanley Chesley is one of the trial bar’s most infamous members, gaining a reputation as a “class-action kingpin” and the nickname “Master of Disaster.” He made millions from mass torts over his decades-long career, but came under fire after allegations surfaced that he and his associates cheated their own plaintiffs out of some $46 million.

While Chesley’s colleagues went to jail for their role in that case, Chesley received immunity at a federal trial. He also avoided initial liability in a civil suit brought on behalf of 382 of the clients, which netted a $42 million judgment. But on July 29, Boone County Judge James Schrand found Chesley jointly and severally liable for the $42 million judgment.

New York Trial Lawyers Are Spending Big on Lobbying

July 17, 2014

Last year, New York lawmakers considered common sense reforms that would insert fairness into the civil justice system by lowering awards in civil lawsuits. But trial lawyers took issue with this legislation – and the impact it would have on their paydays – and came out in full force against the bill.


A project of Citizens Against Lawsuit Abuse, Sick of Lawsuits is an online network of people who are interested in restoring integrity to our justice system by addressing issues surrounding legal reform. We encourage citizens to be empowered as legal consumers, take action against abuses, and help restore common sense and fairness to our legal system.
