Vice President Dan Quayle spoke during the American Bar Association’s Litigation Section’s conference on changes in the American civil justice system. The vice president was invited to speak to the litigation section after he gave a speech to the American Bar Association’s annual meeting in Atlanta, GA, earlier in the year. In that speech, he claimed the high number of civil lawsuits in America had a negative effect on America’s economic competitiveness. In his speech in Chicago, Vice President Quayle repeated the reforms of the American civil justice system recommended by the President’s Council on American Competitiveness, which the vice president heads. He mentioned a class action lawsuit against the pop group Milli Vanilli as being an example to a trivial lawsuit obstructing the civil courts. close
