Mr. KYL. In fact, over half of all the awards are over $1 million. As a poor trial lawyer, for every one of these cases--we are not talking about cases per year and this is per case, you can try 20, 30, 40, 50 cases a year--so for each case, if the average award is $4.3 million, I am only going to keep $1.1 million. Is that fair; that the trial lawyer should only get $1.1 million for every one of these

cases? Of course, the clients I am recovering the money for don't get that money. That money goes into my pocket.
