Another class action over the James Frey affair; this one, in Seattle, seeks, inter alia, recovery for “lost time” spent reading the book, prompting the Bookslut blog to reconsider its opposition to tort reform. It is the third class action filed; an underpublicized class action was filed in California on the 13th, and we reported on the more prominent Illinois class action on Jan. 17. Of course, if “lost time” is actionable, everything is, and we might as well turn over the keys to the country to ATLA. Earlier: Jan. 12. Recommended reading: Michael Greve, Harm-Less Lawsuits?
Update: Eric Goldman has a copy of the complaint and more detail.
