ATLA: scram, insurance press

At the annual convention of the Association of Trial Lawyers of America last month, at which Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer was a featured speaker, press credentials were offered to "mainstream publicly available news media". However, that description turned out not to include Insurance Journal, the very staid and well-established insurance trade publication. The magazine reprints the full exchange between its own Andrew G. Simpson, Jr. and ATLA's public spokesman, Carlton Carl ("America's Trial Lawyers to Insurance Journal: Drop Dead", Insurance Journal, Jul. 26).
