Zimmerman on Gilles and Friedman on Parens Patriae Suits

Adam Zimmerman, who is blogging up a storm at Prawfsblawg, has an interesting post discussing a proposal by Myriam Gilles and Gary Friedman to use attorney generals to bring suits on behalf of victims for their losses.  Such parens patriae suits are, in fact, permissible, and could be a substitute for private enforcement through the class action.  Our own Alexandra Lahav has written about the public function of class actions, and it is refreshing to see more people talk about litigation and enforcement, at least from my point of view.
