The Interland Spring 2005 Business Barometer of Small Business Activities reveals a disconnect between the concerns of small business owners and the overheated rhetoric of tort reform lobbyists. The Interland survey found that 66 percent of small businesses “rarely or never” consider the cost of litigation when making decisions. Forty-five percent of the respondents were “uncertain” whether giving special legal protections to businesses that knowingly endanger their customers would benefit them, and 22 percent said it would not.
