"Our courts are crowded. The judges have too much to do. Some of them don’t have clerks, so it’s crowding the courts with cases that ought not be there. It’s costing the economy a lot of money." – Lawyer Fred Kurtz

Give us a +1 if you agree with Fred...

"I don't think to a person (who worked on this film) that we all at one point didn't just stop and say, 'that's wrong.'"

A few thoughts about this Clarion-Ledger article: 1) Our movie was not made in response to anyone else's movie. In fact, we didn't know about that other movie until well into production of "InJustice." 2) Ms. Slater claims "inaccuracies" but cites no facts, just opinion. We invite you to read this story and share your comments on the story's web page...
Mississippians can see up close today how prominently the state is featured in a documentary about alleged lawsuit abuse.

We're honored to have been invited by Illinois State Rep. Dwight Kay to present our movie before the Illinois House Manufacturers' Caucus in Springfield, IL. Right now, in fact, we're presenting on the movie and Rep. Kay is discussing with his House colleagues the importance of the message of "InJustice" here in Illinois. In the photos below, our producer, Brian Kelly, discusses the film — and Rep. Kay discusses the message with his colleagues:

A Film About Greed and Corruption in America's Lawsuit Industry
Introduction

In this first-ever, feature-length film about the American legal system, InJustice showcases how the class action lawsuit, born from the Civil Rights Act of 1964, was skillfully managed by a small group of trial attorneys who manipulated legal rules, procedures and even their own clients – to become an international enterprise that rivals the scope and profits of Fortune 500 corporations.

InJustice, takes a shockingly candid look-under-the-hood of the American legal machine.  The film takes the viewer on an epic journey through the dark corridors of lawsuit scams and abuses, including: asbestos and silicosis litigation, the Fen-Phen diet scandal, the bizarre truth behind the mega-million dollar tobacco settlements, Main Street America to Wall Street, and the shakedown operations in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.”

In this original exposé, Single Malt Media takes a unique approach to examining the scope and magnitude of lawsuit abuse, its personal and societal costs and the billions in profits the lawsuit industry leverages, many times without ever going to trial.  InJustice blows the lid off the growing phenomenon of how some plaintiffs, who are never injured by an accident or a faulty product, steal resources from those who have been legitimately hurt or damaged.

Motivated through personal experience, awarding-winning producer Brian Kelly decided to make a movie about the U.S. legal system.  His own dealings with trial attorneys were so laborious and tiresome that it triggered his movie-maker instincts and led to this documentary.

The story-telling in the film is distinctive – using the experiences, attitudes and voices of the victims and trial attorneys.  InJustice is a narrative largely told by lawyers in their own words about what is wrong with America’s lawsuit system and who’s to blame.
