Our friends at East Texans Against Lawsuit Abuse recently celebrated their 25th anniversary, standing on the front lines of fighting frivolous and abusive lawsuits.
The Southeast Texas Record sat down with founder Ruben Martin to talk about the group’s success and its priorities in the future. Most pressing, Martin noted, is the fight to rein in hail storm lawsuit abuse. Martin told the Southeast Texas Record:
“…Martin added that so-called “hail storm” lawsuits have also gained in popularity in Texas. He said some lawyers go into areas plagued by a hail storm and encourage homeowners to file lawsuits. In some cases, Martin said this type of litigation can drive up insurance premiums.
“He called on Texas officials to “act now to curb hail storm lawsuit abuse.”
