My boss at the Washington Examiner, Mark Tapscott, today starts
an absolutely top-notch series on a little-known “legal education”
outfit called ILEP that seems to be buttering up judges and others
for favorable treatement for class-action suits, especially for
those involving principals (or former principals) of the
now-disgraced Milberg Weiss firm. Today’s installments are here,
And there is more to come in the next few days.
One other note: The articles a few times mention, quite favorably, the “Prviate Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995,” which cited Milberg Weiss “as evidence why the legislation was needed”; and top partner William Lerach, who was sentenced to a prison term just two days ago, mentioned that act in his pleadings as one reason why (he claimed) he stopped breaking the law after 1995. And who was the author of that act, passed over President Bill Clinton’s veto, an act that now looks better and better as time goes on? Chris Cox, now chairman of the SEC, and an excellent potential choice to be John McCain’s running mate.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
