Re: “Courtney gets her gun: Goodson claims NRA endorsement for chief justice

CourtneyGoodsonForever (which would make a fabulous tattoo) has me trembling in my penny loafers, but I'm still going to make this important point: Much -- maybe most -- of John Goodson's fortune was amassed through a class-action strategy that the U.S. Supreme Court, in a unanimous ruling requiring only about 500 words, said was illegal. Illegal schemes for personal gain are often skillful or even brilliant, but the fact that he got rich doing it does not mean it wasn't illegal. Now Goodson's got a new strategy, as described in detail by Arkansas Business, and a federal judge seems to think it is another abuse of the system.

Re: “Federal judge wants John Goodson to explain class action maneuvering

The name of our publication is Arkansas Business (no Journal). Otherwise, thanks for a good laugh, F&B.

Re: “Federal judge wants John Goodson to explain class action maneuvering

Nestle Cookies, Arkansas Business has reported on the proliferation of arbitration clauses, including a front-page story in June 2014 by Mark Friedman, the same award-winning reporter who wrote the recent story about John Goodson's class-action strategy. Our archives are open only to subscribers, but if you will email me at gmoritz (at) abpg.com, I will send you that article and others on the subject to put your mind at ease. Meanwhile, surely you aren't suggesting that Goodson should be immune from critical reporting just because his wife is running for chief justice. The fact that a federal judge promptly threatened sanctions is pretty good evidence that the story wasn't frivolous. -- Gwen Moritz, Editor, Arkansas Business
