Food Class Action Settlement Returns No Money to Class Members

Former South Carolina Rep. Rick Quinn has been sentenced to 500 hours of community service, The Statereports. 

Recently released emails suggested that Quinn improperly worked with the South Carolina Association for Justice while voting on legal reform measures. Quinn accepted $100,000 from the group, with whom his father’s lobbying firm has worked. The prosecutor said Quinn’s actions showed a “clear association” with his father’s firm, and he failed to report the lobbying activity and income. In addition to community service, his father’s firm was fined for lobbying violations.

A similar story involving anti-legal reform lobbying has arisen is Wisconsin. During a debate on a major reform bill, it was revealed that a lobbying firm representing trial lawyers is working against its own corporate clients.
