Sebok on Judge Weinstein's Decision to Bar Race-Based Actuarial Data

In his latest Findlaw column, Tony Sebok addresses Judge Weinstein's recent decision barring the use of race-based actuarial tables in calculating the lifespan of a severely-injured African-American man who sought future medical expenses, and pain and suffering damages.   Sebok concisely summarizes Judge Weinstein's opinion (pdf), and then provides his critique of the decision.   

Well worth a read.
