Ralph Nader's Tort Law Museum Plan for Winsted Raises Questions

Ralph Nader's Tort Law Museum Plan for Winsted Raises Questions

By the end of August, the construction and remodeling will begin on the country’s first tort law museum, which Ralph Nader decided to put in his hometown of Winsted in northwestern Connecticut.

“Why not? Museums are in small towns all over the country,” Nader said. “Museums should be in small towns.”

Nader says he believes having a museum, of any kind, will bring tourism into Winsted which will increase the activity in local businesses.

Though they tend to agree with the growth of economic development, there’s a group of skeptics that aren’t sold on the idea. “I welcome any new business,” said Gina Sartirana, Winsted resident. “But, we’ve heard about this Tort Museum for a while and nothing came to fruition.”

Many residents, similar to Sartirana, say they’re worried that talk will be had about the museum but nothing will come of it.

“I think we’ve just heard a lot of empty promises,” Sartirana said. “For whatever reason it never happened.”
