The American Tort Reform Association (“ATRA”) recently released a report about the National Association of Attorneys General (“NAAG”). Traditionally, NAAG’s function was to host a forum for state attorneys general to coordinate shared antitrust cases and manage multistate investigations and lawsuits. However, as ATRA’s report shows, NAAG’s mission has crept from promoting consistency across these cases to promoting “entrepreneurial litigation” among its member-attorneys general. Now NAAG functions like an extension of the mass torts plaintiffs’ bar, even taking a cut of settlements, which are a major revenue source for NAAG. Read the full report here.
