Ken Epstein of Omni Bridgeway argues that the American Bar Association needs to do more to encourage the states to experiment with various ways to address the justice gap with well-controlled sandbox experiments, and to revisit its own position on the benefits of litigation financing with a comprehensive, collaborative, and thoughtful dialogue that engages all interested parties.
