Drum Major Institute and Its Blogs

I just came across the Drum Major Institute, which has some policy papers on legal issues (immigration, tort system, etc.).

The Drum Major Institute for Public Policy is a non-partisan, non-profit organization dedicated to challenging the tired orthodoxies of both the right and the left. The goal: progressive public policy for social and economic fairness. DMI's approach is unwavering: We do not issue reports to see our name in print or hold forums for the sake of mere talk. We seek to change policy by conducting research into overlooked, but important social and economic issues, by leveraging our strategic relationships to engage policymakers and opinion leaders in our work, and by offering platforms to amplify the ideas of those who are working for social and economic fairness.
The DMI Blog , subtitled "Politics, Policy, and the American Dream," is about politics and policy broadly.

Tort Deform: The Civil Justice Defense Blog "confronts and transcends the arguments put forth by the tort 'reform' movement, working to ensure that all Americans can access the courts." It includes commentary from many authors. (Several whose biographies I clicked on are connected with Public Citizen.)
