Reading around

Atrios has a follow-up to the recent post here about those "frivolous" asbestos claims. Seems W.R. Grace's culpability in the asbestos poisoning of Libby, Montana, is even more egregious than previously surmised.

Charles Taylor has an excellent and highly informative review of Deborah Lipstadt's account of her trial by trial with David Irving.

Lambert at Corrente finds a Denver Post report with signs of the apparent spread of the extremist doctrine of "jury nullification." (For more on this concept, see my previous post, or see p. 297 of In God's Country.)

Oh yes. I also have a post up at American Street on political correctness after 9/11.
