The Allentown Morning call reports:
Runaway litigation is destroying America, to be sure, and ordinarily the last thing anybody should welcome is another lawsuit, especially one that seems to be aimed at silencing criticism of a public figure.
Penn State climate scientist Michael Mann is a public figure and, as we learned in The Morning Call on Monday, he is going after those who published criticism on the Internet that said his work was “fraudulent” and “a hoax.”
While it’s not easy for a tort reform zealot like me to cheer for litigation, I heartily applaud this lawsuit. That’s because the orchestrated and prolonged attempts to discredit Mann and his research are absolutely despicable.
