Citizens for Reducing the Impact of Lawyers on America, which describes itself as “a group of ordinary citizens that is fed up with the destructive and self-serving work of so much of the legal profession in America,” launched its Web site today. CFRILA is dedicated to the proposition that “the legal system has, over time, been perverted from its original goals much to the detriment of American society.” A statement said the group “plans multiple, sustained campaigns to fix this problem.”
