You’ve maybe read about the pro-trial lawyer documentary out recently from HBO called “Hot Coffee” in The Atlantic. Â (The title “Hot Coffee” refers to the famed McDonalds case of a few years back, when a woman was awarded some $3M+ by a jury for overly-hot coffee spilled on her by McDonalds.)
Now there’s “Injustice,” which asks, “What do you have to do to earn a billion dollars in lawyer’s fees?” Â Steve Forbes calls it a “Must-See.”
The State Bar of Michigan notes the arrival ofÂ bothÂ on its blog:
Trial lawyers feeling the love from theÂ HBO documentary “Hot Coffee”Â might want to brace themselves for the hot splash of contempt coming from ReelzChannel’s anti-trial lawyer documentary InJustice, backed by the Chamber of Commerce.Â The film focuses on class action lawsuits and theÂ so-called â€śkings of torts,â€ť including Richard Scruggs, now in prison for attempting to bribe a Mississippi judge.
