More Money to Fund US Lawsuits? New Investment Opportunities Abound.

One of the few curbs on US lawsuits is the cost as, for all sides, a lawsuit is an expensive proposition. To date, US lawsuits have been limited by the absence of third-party litigation funding companies (as can be found in Australia or the UK). Apparently, that is about to change and a new $200 million dollar litigation fund has been established. Whether this is just the tip of the iceberg is a question that cannot yet be answered.
