"A Taxonomy of Obesity Litigation"



A Little Rock friend of mine had an emergency gap in his law review, and solicited me to write about the fast-food litigation. I'm not a big fan of the eight-footnotes-a-page-style that law reviews like, but I think the piece is a good overview of what has happened to date. The article, 28 UALR L. Rev. 427 (2006), can be downloaded at SSRN (help me catch up with Bainbridge!) or at the AEI Liability Project website. (cross-posted at Overlawyered)

I worry that events have outstripped me; one sentence in the article, "Why is selling soda [to 17-year-olds] an attractive nuisance, but selling ... Internet connectivity is not?" predates the MySpace litigation.
