legal aid accounts upheld
P.L.A. relates the excellent news that the Supreme Court has upheld a practice of pooling small funds held in temporary trusts and using the resulting interests--which the individual accounts would never generate on their own--to fund legal aid clinics, I cited Dwight Meredith's initial post back in January. While he hails the decision, Meredith criticizes Justice Scalia's dissent, disagreeing with Sacalia's, ah, interpretation of the "takings claus."
P.L.A. also has several posts on tort reform, here and here.
