Great paper, but just a drop in the bucket as it only measures the problem in the area of medical malpractice.

He also focuses solely on defense costs. In my opinion, a better measure would be the % of money paid by a liable defendant, which went to lawyers and not the victim.

I've seen cases where, if you count every dollar paid by a liable defendant for their wrong, 80%! of it went to lawyers (plaintiffs and defense) and expenses.
