"DOJ's Free Pass for Tort Fraud"

In a scathing WSJ op-ed -- subscriber-only at the moment -- Cardozo lawprof and friend of this site Lester Brickman assails the U.S. Department of Justice for its apparent unwillingness to pursue signs of fraud in mass asbestos and silicosis litigation. Discussion: Cliff Hutchinson (applauding the article), Esoteric Appeal (taking the interesting view that it isn't fraud for a "party trying to prove their case" to tailor a diagnosis to fit). Plus: related Examiner editorial.
