Ralph Nader, the famous 79-year old consumer advocate, plans to open an American Museum of Tort Law. According to the Washinton Post, Nader got the idea from trial lawyers who were looking for a home for their trial exhibits. The article indicates that "[t]he museum will detail the history of tort law and host exhibits on significant cases such as the 1998 national settlement with tobacco companies. Nader said it may also host artifacts including a Chevrolet Corvair — the car featured in his 1965 book on the auto industry’s safety record, “Unsafe at Any Speed,” which made him a household name." Apparently, Mr. Nader has already raised $2 million for the project and hired a museum design firm to begin renovating a bank building in downtown Winsted, Conn. The plan is to finish the museum within the next 2 years.
