Common Good(organization)

Common Good(organization)

Common Good is a nonprofit organization in the United States that advocates a basic shift in legal structures "to restore common sense to American law." In June 2008, the organization, founded in 2002 by Philip K. Howard, a lawyer and author of "The Death of Common Sense", created NewTalk [] , an online public policy forum that tackles tough issues that are inadequately addressed in the national political debate. Among the distinguished leaders who have participated in NewTalk discussions are New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, former Presidential candidate and U.S. Senator Bill Bradley, Atlanta Mayor Shirley Franklin, and former U.S. Comptroller General David Walker.

Common Good advocates, among other things, the creation of special health courts to address medical malpractice complaints. Pilot health courts [] are currently being designed by Common Good in partnership with the Harvard School of Public Health.
