Ira Stoll: Obama Ally Wages Class Warfare
â€œMegarich Plaintiffs, Legally Adrift,â€ is the headline The New York Times ran over the latest article by Steven Rattner, the money manager and former Obama administration official. As the Times headline makes clear, Rattnerâ€™s argument concerns less the merits of the case than it does the wealth of the plaintiffs. But as Ira Stoll observes, the fact that one party to a legal dispute is rich should be entirely irrelevant to the merits of the case. Thatâ€™s why the classical portrait of justice has her wearing a blindfold.
