Legal Reform
Republicans, Democrats, and Independents from all across the country understand that our society has become litigious to an extreme degree. Texas has been active for years at improving this problem behind Texans for Lawuit Reform. Since 1994, TLR has worked to pass lawsuit reforms that have made the Lone Star State a model for the nation. TLR describes the problem best on their website "We are small business owners, homemakers, and community volunteers. We are lawyers who want our profession back, and plant managers who want our companies to expand facilities to create jobs for Texans. We are consumers who want to eliminate the wasteful "tort tax" from the products and services produced in Texas. We are ranchers and teachers who have anguished over needless lawsuits. We are doctors and nurses who have seen our colleagues abandon their chosen professions because of the emotional and financial toll imposed by legal assaults. We are the citizens of Texas who want a better future for ourselves and our children." The ability to bring suit for a grievance is an important right in America that must not be abused either from limitation to use or excessive use. Today it is excessive use. The Overcriminalization guide prepared by The Heritage Foundation is an eye opener.

New York Prosecutors Subpoena Eight Years of Trump Tax Returns

from The Wall Street Journal,

Move is part of probe examining whether payment to Stormy Daniels violated state business-records law.

State prosecutors in Manhattan have subpoenaed eight years of President Trump ’s tax returns from his longtime accounting firm, according to a person familiar with the matter. The subpoena seeks documents including Mr. Trump’s personal tax returns and those of his longtime business, the Trump Organization, the person said. The probe is examining whether a payment to former adult-film star Stormy Daniels—and the way the Trump Organization recorded the reimbursement of that payment—violated a state law that bars falsifying business records, according to the person. A spokesman for the Manhattan district attorney’s office, which is conducting the investigation, declined to comment. Marc Mukasey, a lawyer for the Trump Organization, said, “We are evaluating our options, taking a look at the situation and we’ll respond in due course.”
