Joe Wilson's sham lawsuit

By

Prominent Duke University Law Professor Erwin Chemerinsky was interviewed again by Professors Hewitt and Eastman and continues to show a complete ignorance of the facts of the case, in which he serves as counsel.

Most significantly, he  has ignored all the evidence of Plame's role in sending Ambassador Munchausen on his Mission, something both the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and the special prosecutor have acknowledged to be true. He contends that his case doesn't depend on Wilson's credibility, cannot even conjure up a plausible theory of causation which places the defendants, Cheney, Rove and Libby in the loop with the man who leaked the story to Novak. Finally, he indicates plaintiffs' counsel has not even yet considered their discovery strategy.

I believe no litigator with serious intent would have failed to have prepared and delivered its discovery requests by this point. And  thus we have futher evidence that the civil suit is a public relations, not a legal, proceeding.
