The Cost of Justice

Fees involved in filing lawsuits, including service of process, should not be borne by plaintiffs.

I propose that the cost of "justice" be deferred until after a case is decided. Then, the losing party gets charged the filing fee. Such a system would treat both parties equally, and enhance participation by the courts in the collection process. I've proposed this to Maine's judiciary committee. Parties often have difficulty collecting awards.
