Posner defends new book to ABA Journal

Judge Richard Posner’s new book, focusing in large part on severe inadequacies in dealing with pro se litigation in the Seventh Circuit, has been subjected to criticism for divulging internal court memos, often interspersed with editorial comments.  In this article in the ABA Journal, Posner responds to some of the critique and reaction to his new book.

Previous coverage of Judge Posner’s book, and abrupt resignation from the bench, here and here.

I received my copy of the Posner book today.  Hopefully the substance of the discussion (especially that concerning pro se litigation and cameras in the courtroom) outweighs the airing of the Court’s dirty laundry.  More reactions to come.
