Mr. Chamberlin's statement that the mandatory rule would be fundamentally unfair to the defendants is funny. Expedited trials are exactly what the defendants wanted when the loser-pays law was being debated. Now that they are getting what they want it somehow unfair. Funny, but also ironic. If defendants typically have the advantage in terms of money and defense attorneys why wouldn't they want the lawsuit process to proceed faster? How much of an advantage can a plaintiff possibly get by simply pleading damages under $100,000?
