Richard Epstein, James Parker Hall Distinguished Service Professor of Law at the University of Chicago law School has an op-ed in today's Wall Street Journal in which he provides some thoughts on Twobley entitled Legal Santiy Discovered (subscription required). From the title, you can imagine that he is doing hand stands in his Hyde Park office as a result of the Supreme Court's decision. One question that Epstein asks is "whether Twombly's healthy skepticism carries over, for example, to class-action claims in securities or antidiscrimination cases." I tend to keep my comments limited to antitrust but if any readers want to share thoughts, feel free to do so.
