Sigh - brings in the nazis and concentration camps. I know that in some states, lawyers cannot be both the lawyer and a member of the class in class action lawsuits because it's a conflict of interest. I'm curious whether the State of Washington allows Pope to represent the class and to be its lawyer. shrug - the courts will know and make him choose.

I love that he says a "religious sub-class", but not which one. I know I slept through a lot of my law classes, but don't you have to specify who was harmed if you make a particular claim like this?

The calorie count is a joke, but the salt... let's face it, most of us are land locked. We have to import salt. Salt is good within reason. :P

I've done some class action work. I don't think there is any prohibition on the lead plaintiffs and class lawyers being one and the same. If the class lawyer has never done any class work, then he might be subject to a challenge as competent counsel. Usually, you cna cure that by associating with another lawyer with class experience, iirc.
