Senators opine on Iqbal & Twombly in the Wall Street Journal

Under the heading Restoring Justice or Hurting National Security?, yesterday's Wall Street Journal published two Senators' letters to the editor about the Notice Pleading Restoration Act of 2009. The Act is designed to legislatively overrule the Supreme Court's decisions in Ashcroft v. Iqbal and Bell Atlantic Corp. v. Twombly.

The letters by Senator Arlen Specter (who sponsored and supports the bill) and Senator Jeff Sessions (who opposes the bill) are available here.

For coverage of last week's Senate Judiciary Committee's hearing on Senator Specter's bill, see here, here, and here.
