We talk a lot on this program about lawyers and how they have a hand in everything from climate change to consumer protection.
Why to make money of course but a one groups fighting back.
Making sure all of this Thanksgiving.
Is worried and lawsuit free.
Justin Wilson from the Center for Consumer Freedom -- joins us now.
Fine young man opposed to the lawyers and their influence on our lives now you've got a novel idea on what to do this Thanksgiving -- wanna hit it to for obvious.
Well it seems like a trial lawyers are trying to -- the stuffing out of just about every industry in this country.
I -- this year alone we saw a woman sue because she found out that crunch berries and Captain Crunch cereal weren't actually fruit.
We had another group try to see Danny claiming their assault in its food you know because got -- their -- and -- and so we've created our Thanksgiving.
Liability and -- identification.
Agreement that comes in triple -- and it protects your your host for Thanksgiving from anything you could ever imagine.
OK so this is assuming that you and ask guests at a Thanksgiving dinner to sign in it's come a -- of liability is that it.
Well and you might want to send it to them overnight registered mail so if they slip on the icy sidewalk coming up in the door are also -- for that.
-- -- -- -- -- -- But we've got a list of the things are gonna put -- on the screen about walks what you identified against festival is failure to provide nutritional content -- very good.
-- to warn of overreaching and the dangers that are all -- -- it.
Faded to offer -- -- alternatives.
So that's it.
Well you know.
This is -- eight.
Satirical take on what is actually becoming a very serious problem in this country when it comes to the litigious nature of trial lawyers.
Who run out of money from the tobacco and asbestos industries and are increasingly turning their eyes.
Two the food industry so.
Even in the current health care bill there's a clause that will require every major restaurant provide nutrition information.
And you've got trial lawyers chomping at the bit to file lawsuits claiming well this had a few extra calories -- you set on the menu and they've already started filing those losses.
I and it's frustrating.
It yet it is -- you're making a joke of this unit you you're saying you know this is satirical approach -- we've got it.
I remember maybe 1516.
Years ago interviewing the president of McDonald's.
And asking him if he thought that he was going to be liable -- lawsuits about the content of the food.
The -- fatten people lawful supposed to.
And some of my fellow journalist just laughed me out of -- but it a custom -- you know I was -- nothing may be your right.
And you know way you were ahead of the curve then and then at this point like I said they just run out of targets and and the food industry is seen as sort of the the next the next big thing for trial lawyers so.
We've gotten the public interest groups.
That create kind of legal terrorism fact there's a group called the center for science in the public interest these -- the people that say fettuccine Alfredo is a heart attack on a plate.
Yeah they file what we call press release stunts lawsuits.
That file for a lawsuit they put out a press release.
And you know what happens those -- never go to trial -- -- drop them we went about it and yet we gotta go just that I'm sorry but we take the points and we wish you well this Thanksgiving you have a happy and a liability free.
Thanks -- -- -- much Justin and your.
