That Stratton Taylor letter


Here it is, courtesy of a kind reader of this site. Click here for the letter itself, or follow the link below for a text version.

Thank you, Senator Taylor, for bringing frivolous lawsuit reform front and center in the political debate.

Something that amuses me about this letter -- the helpful note that Taylor's firm has an office just across the border from Texas in Durant. As you drive across the border into Arkansas, you find tattoo parlors, a service illegal in our state. Drive north into Kansas and border convenience stores sell lottery tickets to Oklahomans, unattainable in their hometown. And the first thing to greet your eyes as you cross the Red River into Texas on I-35 is a shop that appears to be designed to attract Oklahomans in search of literature and paraphernalia not legally available in the Sooner State. So now lawyers will set up "hot tort" shops in Oklahoma border towns, luring Texans across the Red River with promises of big settlements, the kind they can't get in Texas anymore.

Enough of that -- here's the letter.
