Stanford Law Professor Larry Lessig is a personal hero of mine, and someone I have long admired, not only because he has been championing for the freedom of speech on the internet, but because he had the courage to stand up and make his experience known. Today, the great news came in from The Professor: “The New Jersey Assembly has voted 63-5 to enact a law to remove any immunity for negligence in hiring in any case involving sex abuse…”

the catholic church still has not come correct. the culture that cultivated the criminal exploitation of children is still there: unchanged, unbowed, any unapologetic.

the nj bar association is – as usual – simply out of touch with ordinary people.

there are miles left to walk.

I cannot say how happy I am to hear this news. It is a true victory, not only for you and John, but also for the little children that are relying on us to protect them now, and in the future.

Well done Professor and well done John!

This was an important fight, and one that others might not have been so brave to fight so publicly. We disagree from time to time on issues, to be sure, but this is one of a million examples where your work is genuinely inspiring, even to quasi-critics like me. So, thank you.
