« Lester Brickman's testimony today on asbestos litigation | The Alien Tort Claims Act: the next encroachment in the rule of lawyers? »

July 22, 2004


Always low class certification standards. Always

Blogger Jonathan Cobb at The Soapbox (Jul. 9) has some observations concerning this site's coverage (Jul. 8, Jul. 2, Jun. 29) of the decision to certify a class action of all women employees in the Wal-Mart case. And it's fair to say that columnist/commentators Wendy McElroy and Thomas Sowell don't like the court's decision at all. Plus: More from Sowell. Even more: Sally Pipes, Pacific Research Institute.
