The Heritage Foundation (which has a pretty clunky logo, don't you think?) has posted a position paper on the "Sunshine in Litigation Act," which would make most settlement agreements public along with evidence obtained in discovery. The paper, not surprisingly, opposes it, noting its value for the plaintiffs' bar (though it also would remove one item used for leverage in settling cases -- the ability to keep bad documents non-public).
My Review of Litigation piece is inching ever nearer publication and addresses related issues, though not, due to timing, the Act itself.
