TLC: The Second Quintile Of Top Contributors

The last installment of top contributors to the Trial Lawyers College yielded two complaints about naming names. Once contributor demanded that her name be removed. No one from the college itself has raised an issue about publication of the list.

I am unaware of any legal principle that is breached by publishing the names, but I will this week refrain from naming individuals not already disclosed. I will provide mere initials for individuals. I will give the name of a charitable foundation that has contributed.

Nothing prevents the contributors from stepping forward to acknowledge their contribution in a comment. For that matter, nothing prevents readers from commenting on who these generous benefactors may be. The list is current as of June 2, 2009.

11. Gerry Spence. Lifetime contributions of $65,175.38. He last contributed $1,200 on February 26, 2009. His year-to-date total is $1,200.

I believe that the state is a necessary fiction and that failing to combat it is the first step toward tyranny.
