According to recent reports, three state attorneys general will leave the National Association of Attorneys General (NAAG).
Ad Law Access reported this week that the Attorneys General of Missouri, Montana, and Texas will withdraw from NAAG.
The news comes just weeks after the American Tort Reform Association (ATRA) released a report highlighting a shift in NAAG’s focus, citing growing concerns about the organization’s profit motive and its growing alignment with the personal injury bar.
“It’s unfortunate for NAAG that it is now losing members,” ATRA President Tiger Joyce said. “NAAG historically played an important role in coordinating matters across the country and did so while acting in a relatively unbiased manner. Over time, however, the group’s priority seems to have moved away from promoting efficiency and coordination to entrepreneurial litigation targeting a variety of industries – an approach that several state attorneys general have now rejected.”
