Today, the New York Times published this editorial on Iqbal: "Restoring Access to the Courts."
In the News, Twombly/Iqbal | Permalink
Listed below are links to weblogs that reference New York Times Editorial on Iqbal:
According to the New York Times, "[i]n a lamentable 5-to-4 decision earlier this year, the Supreme Court discarded 50 years of legal precedent to make it significantly harder for Americans to assert their legal rights in federal court." This is not my understanding of Twombly and Iqbal.
Twombly, a 7-to-2 decision, written by Justice Souter, "retired" or discarded 50 years of legal precedent. Am I misunderstanding what the Times was referring to?
