ANN Names The 'Heartbreakers' of 2007: #7--Lawyers, Lawyers, Lawyers...

From the Heartbreaker's List #7: Lawyers, Lawyers, Lawyers...

Tort reform was supposed to provide the aviation world with a sigh of relief -- and we're still waiting. What today's lawyers can no-longer sue for, means little when there is so much more open territory left to harvest... and when the rules for today's suits work so much in their favor. The legal system is firmly out of control... No matter what you do, these days, it seems that there is always someone ready to sue you for it -- and in the process, they seem to have the legal wherewithal to do whatever they need to do to smear you in the process of getting ready to clean your clock.

Aero-News: Quote Of The Day (01.07.08)

"It is naive to assume that relaxing export restrictions on sensitive aerospace technology does not represent a significant threat to U.S. jobs, companies and communities... It is equally naive to ignore the national security implications of such technology transfers to China."

The International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM) has called on the U.S. Department of Commerce to suspend a new program that allows companies in China to gain expedited access to sensitive U.S. aerospace technology, including telecommunication and composites technologies with potential military applications.
