"Lighting Up"



Our Jim Copland had an op-ed in Friday's New York Sun on the Supreme Court's recent decision (Jun. 11, etc.) unanimously rejecting a bid by Philip Morris to move an Arkansas consumer protection class action into federal court. "The Court's decision was narrow, procedural, and certainly correct, but the underlying cause of action is reason for serious concern, as it represents the plaintiffs' bar's newest form of lawsuit abuse." Beck and Herrmann also comment on the ruling.
