Weinstein dismisses Vietnam Agent Orange case

Last week I noted, courtesy of Professor Julian Ku of Opinio Juris, that a trial had begun on behalf of Vietnamese individuals allegedly harmed by Agent Orange in the Vietnam War, before Judge Jack Weinstein of the Eastern District of New York (Weinstein managed the original Agent Orange case on behalf of U.S. soldiers and through his handling of mass tort cases has become, in Julian's words (I agree), "a hero of the plaintiffs' bar").

As Julian notes today, Weinstein has just dismissed the action. The full text of his (lengthy) opinion is here. Read Julian's full analysis here.
