NRO's Ponnuru on Edwards's "Robber Baron"



Ramesh Ponnuru, senior editor of National Review, has a good column today discussing Fred Baron, the Texas asbestos lawyer and former president of the American Trial Lawyers Associate who is the man behind John Edwards and co-chairman of Kerry-Edwards Victory '04. Ponnuru picks up where our editor left off in his Wall Street Journal column Monday, "Edwards & Co.," and what I alluded to in my NRO column last week, "Kerry-Edwards & Co.: Trial Lawyers, Inc. Run for President." Ponnuru's column also borrows heavily from the recent article by PointOfLaw contributor Lester Brickman, which details extensively the asbestos scams that have plagued our legal systems. Ponnuru goes so far as to suggest a RICO investigation into Baron & Budd, Baron's firm.
