The civil justice system is limited in its capacity. It’s the most frustrating thing about what I do as a lawyer. I don’t have a magic wand. I cannot cure these beautiful children of their blindness. What we do as lawyers in the civil justice system is crucial, because it’s not only about having the right to sue. It’s something much more basic than that. It’s an American value that we all hold near and dear to our hearts. It’s about the right to stand up and say, “I get counted too. If you do something wrong to me, you’re responsible for it.”

You have the right to a jury of your peers to hear that dispute, and at the end of it, reach a conclusion as to whether or not somebody was responsible, number 1. Number 2, if they were indeed responsible, then what the value in money damages is for the harm caused. That money is crucial to changing the lives of these kids. I’ve seen it firsthand. I’ve watched these children grow up, and I get to see what that money does to change their lives for the better.
