Capitol Comment 273 - Class Action Lawsuits: We Are All Victims Now

Not everyone is getting rich through tech stocks these days. There is a large group of people becoming wealthy through another hot investment: the state-based class action lawsuit. Unfortunately, it is the trial lawyers who reap huge benefits, while plaintiffs often receive only coupons. The Class Action Fairness Act of 1999 (S. 353) is a positive step towards reining in frivolous class action lawsuits and the trial lawyers who encourage them.

CSE responds to Judge Jackson's Conclusions of Law

Earlier today, the presiding judge in the government's antitrust lawsuit against Microsoft issued an opinion known as the "conclusions of law." Regrettably, U.S. District Judge Thomas Penfield Jackson paints a picture of Microsoft that is far from reality. Labeling the company a monopoly, he said that Microsoft "maintained its monopoly power by anticompetitive means" and attempted to monopolize the Web browser market. The judge also ruled that Microsoft violated another section of the law by "unlawfully tying its Web browser to its operating system" and could be sued under state anti-competition laws. In reality, Microsoft's behavior is the lawful byproduct of the most competitive marketplace in the world. The government's actions through this case threaten to limit that competition and the innovation and consumer benefits that come from it.

Parties Should Pool Efforts on School Bonds

Copyright 2000 News & Record (Greensboro, NC) News & Record (Greensboro, NC) April 3, 2000, Monday, ALL EDITIONS SECTION: EDITORIAL, Pg. A8, In a perfect world, both Democrats and Republicans would recognize the vast expanse of common ground they share on the Guilford school bonds. In a perfect world, both parties would see that they already have agreed in principle to the bonds, which would raise $ 200 million to finance desperately needed construction throughout the system.

Alexander Graham Bell, Meet Senator William Roth

Yesterday was a big day in the history of telecommunications. On March 30, 1876 Alexander Graham Bell made the fist telephone call. Countless schoolchildren have memorized his first message, "Watson come here. I need you." Over the last 124 years, the telephone has gone from being a curiosity, to a luxury item, to a common, everyday method of communication.

Commission Deadlocked, but battle just beginning

Regrettably, the Advisory Commission on Electronic Commerce has failed in its mission to provide guidance to Congress. Because of a few pro-tax commissioners who were adamant in their determination to raise taxes on consumers, the commission walked away without a recommendation.
