  •  If I were the Governor of MN (3+ / 0-)

    I wouldn't even let it get to the trial lawyers.  I would announce the establishment of a victim's fund immediately, and go to the legislature to chuck a whole bunch of cash into it, as well as asking the victims' insurers to contribute an amount equal to their insureds' policy limits.  Then appoint a commission to apportion the funds.  Of course, I'd make everyone getting such compensation sign a release, but that is standard operating procedure.

    but now that you mention it.... Pawlenty is a No-Longer-Independant-Republican and making the trial lawyers into a boogie-man might serve his political machinations.
