    Local industry, meet the next iteration of the never-ending game of Whack-A-Mole.

      Your metaphor is a good one. Some wars aren’t ended until one party or the other is completely vanquished. Right now there is a war of attrition, with insurers dropping like flies and rates continually rising, only never fast enough. The lawyers are perfectly happy with a sick insurance industry but would be rather sad about a dead industry, so they favor useless tinkering at the margins so everybody thinks, “at last, we’ve found the solution!” The thing is, they are going to milk that cow until they kill it. It’s in their nature to deplete a resource until nothing is left. It’s like a plague of locusts.

        For the most part, we elect people into office because of a popularity contest, how much money they have, or because of their celebrity status. Nothing to do with their capability. The presence and proliferation of social media has exacerbated this. Then they propose new laws, like this one, that any good lawyer can exploit. Why should we think anything different could happen.

    Agreed. This move reeks of the Plaintiff’s Bar’s addiction to easy attorney’s fees. They’re so used to this easy source of quick cash, they find it perfectly reasonable to ask for silly things like “sooo can you pay us before we even prove you owe us payment for our fees to begin with?.”

      To the Citizens of the State of Florida: Sooner or later you run out of other people’s money.
