Texas Global Warming Plan Advocates Misguided

The following statement was made today by Texas Citizens for a Sound Economy’s state director, Peggy Venable, in response to the TNRCC’s rejection of the petition to implement the Kyoto Protocol in Texas: “Environmental groups are using the global warming issue to try to force Gov. Bush to take a stand on the Kyoto Protocol, a treaty signed by President Clinton over two years ago but soundly rejected by the Senate in a bi-partisan vote of 95-0.

No testing may mean increased pollution

BY CRAIG PITTMAN

But at a public hearing, state environmental officials said it won't be enough to violate federal laws. Other speakers disagreed. Ending auto emissions tests will add an estimated 12 tons of pollutants each day to the air over Tampa Bay. State environmental officials said at a public hearing Tuesday that the increase is not enough to violate federal air pollution laws.

Letter from Dan Boyce to CSE activist

Dear Kim: Thank you for taking time to write August 11th. I share your concerns about frivolous lawsuits. I could mention others than tobacco, guns and Microsoft as I am sure you could. For example, Mr. Easley joined in the "Toys-R-Us" case where he and the other lawyers took the cash leaving only three years of gifts of Christmas toys to the consumers. I think also of the airline case where the plaintiffs got only coupons for future travel and the auto manufacturers’ lawsuit where the plaintiff got vouchers for their next vehicle purchase of the same make.

Theft Spotlights Laptop Loss Threat

BY Nick Wingfield

Irwin Jacobs came face-to-face with one of the biggest security issues facing American business executives these days: What happens when a laptop chock full of business secrets gets ripped off? Jacobs, the chief executive and founder of Qualcomm Inc., had his laptop stolen from a journalism conference this past weekend in Irvine. The IBM ThinkPad laptop, which he had used to give a presentation at the conference, contained megabytes of confidential corporate information dating back years, including financial data, e-mail and personal items.

Justice Resnick's Impartiality Questioned

An editorial published in August 18th’s Columbus Dispatch questions sitting Ohio Supreme Court Justice Alice Robie Resnick’s future impartiality on the DeRolph case. The author cited Justice Resnick’s attendance at the dedication of the new Vinton County High School where she shared the stage with William L. Phillis, the lead plaintiffs’ attorney in the DeRolph case, as a point of concern and a disservice to the high court’s Code of Judicial Conduct. The author notes that Justice Resnick was quick to accuse Chief Justice Thomas J. Moyer of violating the code when he advocated the election of Judge Terrence O’Donnell, Resnick’s opponent in the supreme court race, to a meeting of the Ohio Republican Party.

A Tax Hike is Bad Medicine for North Carolina's Economy

The first rule of public policy is not unlike that of medicine – "do no harm." And politicians, like doctors, should never pick a cure that not only kills the disease, but also the patient.

The Trial Lawyer Class Action Scam

The Trial Lawyer Class Action Scam Trial Lawyers are Making Millions of Dollars While Consumers Get Coupons! If you won a dollar in a lawsuit and your lawyer got paid almost $1 million, that wouldn't be fair. Yet, that's exactly what's happening with state class action lawsuits. A class action lawsuit allows similarly situated people to go to court as a group. For instance, assume the electric company wrongfully charged several customers an extra $500. Customers could sue as a "class," rather than each one of them suing the electric company on their own.
