Well, the book actually gives both sides (from a lawyer's point of view), but to limit it to not limiting tort law, from what I know, favors the people, and not businesses. For example...(from the book), a town which is built on a masonary business is in trouble. This company manufactured bricks which were defective and fell apart after a certain amount of years after they were used in houses. They were used in many houses. The people were talked into sueing the masonary company for damages to their homes. (Many, many people) The company has been sued and each person sues for, say $50,000 in damages to their homes. There are 10,000 people who are in this lawsuit. That comes to $50,000,000. This company doesn't have this much money, so they file bankruptcy. They can pay out $1,000,000. This comes to $100 per home. In this sense, each home gets some money, but not all for damages. The company is out of business for making defective bricks. That is the good thing. But then on the other side, which your group is not dealing with, is the fact that all the employees of the business are out of work and the down goes down the drain.
So I guess, from your side, putting down the bad comanies is a good thing. Hope this helps a little bit. I'm sure more will chime in.

I feel sorry for the people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that's as good as they're going to feel all day.
