Brickman vs. Mencimer

No one has done more to expose systematic fraud and excessive fee-charging in mass tort litigation than Prof. Lester Brickman, so it's no surprise that he's made more than a few determined enemies along the way. Lately he was the target of ten pages' worth of hostile coverage in the recent book Blocking the Courthouse Door, by Stephanie Mencimer (an author we know is not accustomed to accept spoon feeding from trial lawyer sources, because she says so herself). Anyway, Prof. Brickman recently launched a website of his own and among its contents is this detailed response to Mencimer, in PDF format. He finds the passages in question to be replete with "false statements, errors, innuendo, and simply inaccurate reporting".

Speaking of which, it should be noted that a flip through the index of Blocking the Courthouse Door reveals Mencimer taking potshots at what she is pleased to refer to as the Manhattan Institute "of" Policy Research and its eminent founder "Anthony" Fisher.
