Though my friend and frequent co-counsel Lanny Darr has done many, many things meriting distinction, his latest appearance in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch was what some observers might call a dubious distinction: "Class-action suit filed here may be first since new U.S. law was enacted," by Paul Hampel.
But wait! In another newspaper, the best-dressed full-time tort reformer in Illinois actually endorsed Lanny's lawsuit. It happened in an article in the Belleville News-Democrat, where Ed Murnane had this to say about Lanny's case involving unsolicited faxes: "If this is not an abusive case, let it go. I might sign up."
But enough of the fun and games. What I really wanted to say is that in just seven days, Lanny and I are leaving together for Prague, as first reported in this post. It was a trip we purchased at a charity event that we attended with our wives. Our wives, for some reason, wanted to get us out of town, and so much more.
Assuming I can get an Internet connection, I'll be bringing you a week's worth of the Prague Blog beginning next Monday--and reporting on Lanny's antics to boot, unless he objects, which I'm going to advise him, as his attorney, to do.
