Wall Street Journal Gets Some of it Right
To Chad Bray (firstname.lastname@example.org)
I am the lead objector to the copyright class action settlement that got thrown out by the Second Circuit. Your report in is the only one I've seen anywhere that actually mentions why the appellate court was reviewing the district court's approval of the settlement in the first place. Congratulations and thank you.
All of your colleagues apparently would have their readers believe that the Second Circuit parachuted down out of nowhere to trash the settlement. Though it's probably not realistic to expect journalists employed by defendants and interested parties in this case to report the story exactly as I would, this fundamental disconnect is striking.
