    Lisa Millican is a tireless and zealous advocate for her clients - most of whom cannot and do not front the costs of litigation. To see her attacked like this makes me sick. Anyone can say anything about anyone in a complaint. By adding claims of racketieering, plaintiffs' counsel - who represent employers in these cases - show an intention not to seek justice, but to destroy reputations.

    I suggest that readers withold judgment and not make decisions based upon allegations in a complaint.
