The Limits of Litigation-The Dalkon Shield Controversy is a tightly written, interesting book. It takes the reader from the beginning of the litigation concerning the contraceptive device to the bankruptcy settlement for the claimants. Professor Ronald J. Bacigal provides insight into the competing perspectives of the litigants as these cases crawled through the courts. The book reveals how the physical and emotional injuries that were suffered by so many women placed great pressure on the trial judges to force a resolution.
