When the ACLU gets involved  in a case, even a business rights case, I tend not to notice, because of that organization’s infamous anti-business bias. When the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers  gets involved in a case, I pay much more attention, even as I recognize that the group has an agenda different from my own.

But when the Washington Legal Foundation  gets involved in a case, I pay the most respectful possible attention, because WLF is probably the best legal-advocacy group currently dealing with business rights.

Now, it seems, all three organizations  have filed amicus briefs  in the case of Sholom Rubashkin, which I mentioned here , here , and here . The WLF brief is also noteworthy for the legal firepower backing it: 18 noted law school deans and professors, former federal judges, and former prosecutors.
