Max Boot on Lowndes County, Ala.

Thanks to Alex Tabarrok at our current Featured Discussion for pointing to a resource we hadn't known was online: the Denver Post has reprinted a very interesting chapter from Max Boot's book Out of Order built around an account of the unusual brand of justice on display in Lowndes County, Ala., where famed tort attorneys James Butler and Jere Beasley won a $150 million jury verdict against GM in the courtroom of Judge A. Ted Bozeman in a case alleging a defective door latch in a Chevy Blazer.
