On criticizing lawyer bias

From the Right:

"The Wall Street Journal has an editorial (subscrip. req'd) on the amicus brief filed by Congressmen Frank and Conyers in the Stoneridge case. The newspaper is critical of the congressmen's decision to have a law firm that does lobbying work for plaintiffs lawyers write the brief.

Quote of note: 'We trust the Supreme Court Justices, who are due to hear Stoneridge arguments as early as October, will notice the provenance of Mr. Frank's legal wisdom.."
