a fisherman’s breath

    • Check out Evan Schaeffer’s reaction to the vioxx-$million website, which we covered earlier

      today.  Ann Landers would probably blame Yalies with too much time on their hands.

today.  Prof. Grace says:

“prof grace”  Everyone who pontificates (one way or the other) about litigation

reform needs to see this advertisement.  It truly puts the $$lot in lottery.

Prof. Yabut wants to go on record saying that the website is most probably a creature of either

  • the tort reform movement itself — hoping to make a few bucks from Goooogle Ads while

    catching some greedy tort lawyers and plaintiffs in the act of being naughty; or

  • the very entrepeneurial spirit so touted by Pres. Bush — inspired by his and the Reform

    movement’s insistence that there is a lot of easy money to be made from the Tort Machine.

If the website were the legitimate creature of a law firm or cartel of some sort, why would “Leon” the

proprietor point to a newspaper article that calls the site unscrupulous?   Or offer to sell the entire

site for “US$120K including content, hosting, and the method for traffics.”


And why use a a domain name [yi] based in Yugoslavia?  Of course, “yi” might stand for Yeast 

Infection — or be the Chinese ethics term for “faithful performance of one’s specified duties to

society.”  I wonder what Lawyer Schaeffer thinks of all this.
