Attorney Joe Price Brings ‘ Hot Coffee ‘ to Harrisburg

Date: May 24, 2012

Harrisburg – May 22. A contingent of PAJ members headed to the Capitol in Harrisburg to personally deliver copies of the DVD “Hot Coffee” to every member of the Legislature and their staffs. Over 20 PAJ members graciously offered their time to help with this important educational project.

If you have watched “Hot Coffee”, you know it is without exception one of the most powerful examinations of how the legal system is supposed to protect us, but is too often warped by attacks. A system designed to protect the many has been transformed into one that protects the powerful.

We’ve had a strong couple of months in Harrisburg thanks to the hard work of Mark Phenice, Tom Previc and the literally dozens of PAJ members who have given their time and effort to our clients’ cause. Hopefully, legislators and staff will watch “Hot Coffee” and recommit themselves to protecting people’s rights rather than chipping away at them.
