We noticed two things in the recent “book review” issue of the Michigan Law Review.

First, Anthony Sebok’s review of Richard Nagareda’s book, Mass Torts in a World of Settlement, is worthwhile for those who toil in the same field that we do, but haven’t yet found time to read the whole book.

Second, in his review of Not a Suicide Pact: The Constitution in a Time of National Emergency, Judge Stephen Reinhardt, of the Ninth Circuit, writes this of Judge Richard Posner, of the Seventh:

“The problem with Posner is not his writing, which is excellent. The problem is his judgment, which is not.”

Ouch!

Here’s a link to the table of contents of the book review issue. From there, you can click in turn to the individual reviews.
