Letters to The Ethical Spectacle

Spectacle Letters Column Guidelines. Send your comments to me at jw@bway.net. I will assume the letter is for publication. If it is not, please tell me, and I will respect that. I have gotten into the habit of leaving out full names and email addresses; I have had too many people think better of something they said fifteen years ago. If you want your name and email included, let me know. Flames, however, will be published with full name and email address.

Dear Jonathan,

I just wanted to send a quick thank you for your article on Poor People’s Courts. I stumbled upon it when I did a Google search for the phrase “Poor People’s Court.” The lack of civil representation for the country’s poor really is a travesty of justice. Your article shares great anecdotal evidence about this.

You may interested in a recent law review article on this topic, which I also found in my Google search:

"Demand Side Reform in the Poor People’s Court"

Thank you for your pro bono service to those in need.
