"A society that has more justice is a society that needs less charity." - Ralph Nader, activist, author, attorney
One of Ralph Nader's long-held ambitions has come true: the American Museum of Tort Law, located in Winsted, Connecticut, is a real thing now. According to its website, the museum's vision is to increase citizen understanding of tort law and its role in protecting personal freedom, health and safety through the civil justice system.
As law professor John Culhane writes for Politico Magazine (Ralph Nader's Strange New Museum), there are those who might imagine a "pedantic slog through the history of tort law" - in short, a rather unexciting museum experience - but the reality is anything but.
