We were pleased — heck, we were shocked — to learn that Continental, the inflight magazine of Continental Airlines, would be profiling one of your humble scribes in its June issue. But June has come, and the issue is now in a seat-back pocket near you. We extend a warm welcome to all readers of Continental who are joining us for the first time.

For those new visitors, we have some good news and some bad news. First, the bad news. Although it’s true that we host a law blog, we’re not exactly writing here about “common law for the common man.” We post almost entirely about issues that arise in the defense of pharmaceutical or medical device product liability lawsuits or other class actions or mass torts.

Next, the good news.

Wait . . . we’re thinking.

Well, heck, we’re cool guys, and we’re delighted that you made the effort to visit, even if we fear that we won’t be enjoying your company too often in the future. Thanks for looking.
