Throughout the whole series, we’ve heard directly from those impacted the most by Louisiana’s abusive lawsuit system. There are economic costs, too. In “Striking Balance”, we hear from Dr. Stephen Barnes, director of the Kathleen Babineaux Blanco Public Policy Center at the University of Louisiana, Lafayette. Dr. Barnes walks us through the devasting economic impact the loss of jobs because of lawsuits can and will have on Louisiana’s economy.
Faces of Lawsuit Abuse presents Louisiana: The Lawsuit Paradise, a multipart series that looks at how the business of suing threatens the state’s economy. You’ll hear firsthand from small business owners, workers, and others who know firsthand how lawsuits hurt the state’s job creation and growth and force companies to take their business elsewhere
