Lott v. Levitt Update

Josh Wright —  13 April 2006

In the comments to my earlier post on the abortion/ crime debate, Bill Barth noted that John Lott had filed suit against Levitt and Harper Collins over statements about Lott’s research in Freakonomics. Here is a brief update. Tim Lambert has a comprehensive summary of the blogosphere reaction to the suit. Ted Frank at Overlawyered has posted a copy of the complaint filed in the Northern District of Illinois.

    That seems like a fine idea ~spad. Thanks for the suggestion. I think I have fixed this.


    You should post with your last name included. It makes a differance for RSS users like myself who discriminate on the basis of name as well as article title.
