Ralph Nader Plans Tort Law Museum

From ABA Journal

Consumer advocate Ralph Nader has raised about $2 million to build an American Museum of Tort Law.

Nader has hired a museum design firm for a facility in Winsted, Conn., the Associated Press reports. He hopes to open the doors in the next two years.

Nader told AP he got the idea for the museum after trial lawyers said they had no place to put exhibits used in court cases. He hopes to showcase the history of tort law with information on important cases and possibly some artifacts—including the Chevrolet Corvair featured in his 1965 book, Unsafe at Any Speed.

Nader hopes his museum will promote the legal system. “We’ll be puncturing a lot of myths and lies that it’s a cash cow for greedy tort lawyers,” Nader told AP.
