  • Judge rejects class-action status in 3M PFC lawsuit (Pioneer Press, June 19)
    Commentary: Anyone who has read "A Civil Action" (or seen the movie) or John Grisham's "King of Torts" will be fascinated with the real-life class-action legal process and the explanations of the judge's reasoning. But after seeing TV and full-page print ads trolling for "injured parties," many readers will be amazed to read the following: "One action was a door-knocking campaign in Washington County, 'making unsolicited contacts with local residents about this lawsuit,' and paying them $50 each to have their blood tested for the chemicals. It is commonly considered unethical to solicit for legal business."
