The new website aspires to match would-be litigants with the right class action and lawyer for them, but Michael Arrington likely is a great deal too flattering in terming it a “Shangri-La for ambulance chasers” (TechCrunch, Apr. 12), since it remains to be seen whether such a mechanism will be able to attract either litigants or lawyers of the highest caliber. To Luke Gilman (Apr. 13) it calls to mind “a hairball generator…. Looks like a race to the bottom on both sides to me.” Writes TechCrunch commenter “Joey”: “I hope they make a Facebook app: ‘6 of your friends joined this class action lawsuit! Click here to join!'” P.S. Much more from Eric Turkewitz, & welcome visitors from Legal NewsLine and United Press International.
