Senator Fred Thompson - Tennessee's Current Civil Jury System Doesn't Need Fixing
Posted By Kinnard, Clayton & Beveridge || Feb 2, 2011
Former Senator Fred Thompson recently wrote an op-ed piece explaining why placing caps on damages is wrong for Tennessee. Senator Thompson states:
"Some argue that the legislature should tell Tennessee juries that they can award only so much compensation in certain types of cases against certain types of defendants - regardless of the facts and circumstances of the case. I don't agree with this approach, and I don't think it's "conservative."
To me, conservatism shows due respect for a civil justice system that is rooted in the U.S. Constitution and is the greatest form of private regulation ever created by society. Conservatism is individual responsibility and accountability for damages caused, even unintentionally. It's about government closest to the people and equal justice with no special rules for anybody. It's also about respect for the common-law principle of right to trial by jury in civil cases that was incorporated into the Seventh Amendment to the Constitution."
