Pattis on “The Rule of Lawyers”

Premier criminal defense blogger Norm Pattis takes a look at my 2003 book on mass litigation and agrees with much of what I have to say, while still winding up with a feeling of “ambivalence.” A sample:

I end where I started. Lawyers have too much power. We play with the lives of others with impunity. I think Olson’s on to something.

I await his next book, and encourage him to take a look at the lives or ordinary lawyers. Not all of us own jets. I’m thrilled with first class on the few times I’ve tried it. Most often I fly coach.

Whole thing here.
