Insurance Industry's Ads Hit Hard

David Postman, Trial lawyers complain insurance industry's ads are "slanderous," Seattle Times, Sept. 14, 2007.

The trial attorneys funding their Referendum 67 campaign say the insurance industry's ads making fun of lawyers are "slanderous, uncivil and reckless."

Karen Koehler, president of the Washington State Trial Lawyers Association, wrote a letter last week to the Washington State Bar Association (WSBA), with copies sent to members of the state Supreme Court, complaining about TV spots featuring the fictional law firm of Sooem Settle & Kashin.
There's more in Postman on Politics (Sept. 13) -- and of course there are comments.

WSTLA president Karen Koehler is also a UW Trial Ad instructor.
