ATRA BILLBOARD TARGETS A SPECIFIC TEXAS LAWYER . . . Here's an image of a billboard that the American Tort Reform Association put up near a San Antonio courthouse:
Rather than specifically naming the lawyer targeted in the billboard, ATRA refers to him only as a "still-practicing local lawyer." Maybe someone was worried about hurting his feelings. No, that can't be it. ATRA had no problem putting his name in the press release it issued to brag about the billboard--
A billboard unveiled today near the courthouse in downtown San Antonio is designed to draw the public's attention to the fact that a local attorney continues to practice law, following a sharp rebuke from a Texas appellate court for his willing participation in a fraudulent, multi-billion dollar lawsuit.
"Since the State Bar of Texas has failed to appropriately punish him, we decided to turn up the heat on Trey Wilson for pursuing a bogus, $2 billion lawsuit that the trial judge said was based on faked evidence, witness tampering and intimidation," explained Sherman Joyce, president of the American Tort Reform Association (ATRA), the billboard's sponsor.
So now you know the rest of the story. I don't really know what to say about the billboard, except that I probably won't be seeing the movie. I hear it's only playing in Texas.
