In the age of the vanishing civil jury trial an experienced federal district judge pens a fictitious obituary for the American Trial Lawyer.
The American trial lawyer (ATL), who, in innumerable ways, enhanced the lives of so many Americans and made the United States a fairer, healthier, safer, more egalitarian, and just nation, passed away recently. Although a precise age is uncertain, ATL is believed to have been at least 371 years old at the time of death.
