GlobaLawsuit Whoremining Brown-on-Brown HOT Legal XXX action

This from Injsty, a report in the San Diego Union-Tribune vindicating the Federal Court’s up-chuckign of the regurgitated nonsense-suite against automakers.

Last summer and fall, I had an in-person interview and two phone interviews with a brilliant Yale Law School graduate who thought little of the global warming lawsuit against six automakers pushed by then-California Attorney General Bill Lockyer.

Among the things he told me:

1) “One of the principles of tort law is that damages should not be speculative,” so Lockyer’s lawsuit failed that very simple test.

2) He wondered how Lockyer’s suit could assert “causation” between vehicle emissions and the size of California’s mountain snowpacks.

3) There was an urgent need to do something about global warming, but seeking national and international cooperation on the issue made a lot more sense than a lawsuit.

Yesterday, a federal judge vindicated the brilliant Yale-educated lawyer’s take on Lockyer’s lawsuit.

“The kicker, of course, is that the Yale-educated lawyer who ridiculed Lockyer’s lawsuit to me was Jerry Brown — who either lied to me back then or changed his mind later when he saw being an anti-global-warming crusader as his ticket back to the governor’s office in 2010. He embraced Lockyer’s lawsuit as his own even though he doubted its wisdom, because he believed it to be a political winner.”
Har-har-har. Politicians crapping in the Public trough.
