Stephanie Mencimer's credibility -- and the Washington Monthly's

Stuart Taylor, Jr. of Newsweek and National Journal has written a detailed, point-by-point rebuttal to Stephanie Mencimer, whose articles assailing liability reformers have been a low point in the recent history of the Washington Monthly. Curiously or otherwise, the Monthly's editors seem to be refusing to post his letter or acknowledge his response to Mencimer's attack on his work. I've got much more on the story at Overlawyered, including a copy of Taylor's letter posted with his permission.
