Day 7

It's Day 7 of the Wimp Watch - waiting for Governor Brad Henry to come down hard on Senator Stratton Taylor for bringing unwanted national attention to Oklahoma's lack of tort reform. As discussed last week in this blog a letter from Taylor (a trial lawyer and the head of the State Senate) to lawyers across the USA to do their sueing in Oklahoma caught the attention of the Wall Street Journal. The paper blistered Oklahoma for its lack of reform and Taylor for inviting lawyers to take advantage of our no-caps-on-jury-awards system.

Governor Henry hasn't done a thing to respond to the conflict of interest or Taylor's shameful letter. We're waiting.
