U.S. Chamber Institute for Legal Reform Statement On Lawsuit Filed Against Dairy Industry

Lisa Rickard, president of the U.S. Chamber Institute for Legal Reform, issued the following statement in response to the lawsuit filed today against the dairy industry :

“This lawsuit is yet another attempt by a group with questionable motives using frivolous litigation to stir up publicity for a hidden agenda, rob individuals of personal choice and attack lawful American employers. Our country’s obesity problem has been caused by multiple factors, including an increase in caloric consumption combined with a decrease in physical activity. Rather than promoting healthy lifestyles or thinner waistlines, this junk lawsuit will only serve to feed our already-bloated tort liability system that eats up more than $240 billion a year.” For more information, please visit the U.S. Chamber Institute for Legal Reform study, “Burgers, Fries and Lawyers: The Beef Behind Obesity Lawsuits,” available online at: http://www.instituteforlegalreform.org/resources/burgers.pdf.
