ROCKFORD REGISTER STAR
— New report confirms need for lawsuit reform in Illinois – Travis Akin  (DIERSEN: Have you even filed a lawsuit? I have.  If you file a lawsuit, a) expect that those who you sued will spend the rest of their lives trying to destroy you and b) expect that your critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes will glorify and praise and pander to those who you sued.  I should write a book about those who I have sued, what they continue to do to destroy me, and those who glorify and praise and pander to those who I sued.)
