You’ll hate me saying this, but I find a lot to agree with in your post. I am not proposing anything like abolishing lawsuits, but I think we need something the English rule where the loser pays, among other overdue reforms. I would also be interested in your take on the Pao case. If you don’t want to share that here, you are welcome to email me. I’ve already been outed on this blog. I teach business at the Univ. of Minnesota. You shouldn’t have too much trouble finding my email address.
