In california, ya can get unjustifiably punched in the stomach and have an immediate, vested right to the cash value of your pain and suffering. In minnesota, despite the right to sue in the state constitution, the minnesota supreme court says that right doesn't vest until ya win a legal judgment. If ya were to be punched like that, and the state somehow interfered with your ability to get to court, they wouldn't be interfering with any right ya have.

When I hear an attorney mention his/her Super Lawyer status, I laugh. Analysis: one attorney nominates another in the firm and vice versa, and voila...now you're both Super Lawyers. What's so "super" about that?

I have seen these clowns in person, and let me tell you THIS MEANS NOTHING! I have seen public defenders get better deals than the supposed "super lawyers" like David Valentini and their ilk. The whole thing seems like an ad, and now we're seeing it for what it is. If only there were an objective method for determining an attorney's skill, wins and losses aren't a good indicator. Peer review is useless, and asking the judiciary to weigh in would require Judges to work more than 20 hours a week.
