"The sheer number of lawsuits," said Slade O'Brien of Florida Stop Lawsuit Abuse. "We have 1,200 lawsuits filed in Florida every single day. It clogs up the system and creates a sort of a jackpot justice system that really doesn’t do any good for anybody in the State of Florida.”
Starting Tuesday O'Brien will conduct a statewide tour collecting stories of lawsuit abuse.
