Washington, DC—“We appreciate the honesty of ATRA spokesman Darren McKinney.

“In a 3/10/08 CQ article, he said, ‘Maybe I'm a mouthpiece for corporate evil doers or maybe not.’ Since ATRA is a front group for tobacco, insurance, and pharmaceutical companies, that’s one thing we can both agree on.

“As expected, ATRA’s so-called white paper is a public relations stunt disguised as serious academic research.

“Mr. McKinney recently suggested that AAJ should only attack the message and not the messenger. He can be rest assured we will fervently respond to half-truths and misstatements as long as ATRA carries the water for corporations looking to undermine the civil justice system.”

As the world's largest trial bar, the American Association for Justice (formerly known as the Association of Trial Lawyers of America) works to make sure people have a fair chance to receive justice through the legal system when they are injured by the negligence or misconduct of others—even when it means taking on the most powerful corporations.
