By February 11, 2008Briefly Legal

Ralph Nader, praising a convicted felon for ginning up class-action lawsuits that cost the stockholders of American businesses billions of dollars. From Legal Pad:

“Until now, I have not written a letter asking a judge to be lenient in sentencing a defendant,” said the consumer advocate/perennial presidential headache. “I do so today because of the unique contribution William Lerach has made to our society and to the practice of law.”

The New York Sun reports that Nader urged the judge to spare Lerach prison and instead have him lecture law students on ethics.
