Lawyers, Lawyers....How the Times Change!

Now, a major story on law firms utilizing "fake" witnesses in class action suits over the past 20 years!

Abraham Lincoln spoke: "Discourage litigation. Persuade your neighbors to compromise whenever you can. Point out to them how the nominal winner is often a real loser - in fees, expenses, and waste of time. As a peacemaker the lawyer has a superior opportunity of being a good man. There will still be business enough." The Collected Works of Abraham Lincoln edited by Roy P. Basler, Volume II, "Notes for a Law Lecture" (July 1, 1850?), p. 81.

and now the day has changed in lawyerly attitude.....Captain Ed details the story.

What a sad comment on our changes in society and the legal profession....and, most certainly not the attitude of such scholarly folk amongst the blogosphere as Instapundit and Ann Althouse.
