Introducing Blog Justice

Alan Milstein and his law firm, Sherman Silverstein, Kohl, Rose & Podolsky, have started a new blog that will be of interest to many of you: Blog Justice. It will examine legal issues that intersect with social justice. While Alan is regarded by many as the nation's leading sports litigator (he has litigated on behalf of Allen Iverson, Eddy Curry, and Maurice Clarett, among other prominent athletes), he has received even more acclaim for his litigation in the areas of insurance law, products liability, bioethics and clinical trials litigation. Perhaps his most notable case was his representation of the family of Jesse Gelsinger, an 18-year-old who died during an early gene therapy study at an Ivy League university. Alan's expertise on these issues will no doubt prove illuminating when examining various legal topics.

Consider some of the first posts on Blog Justice:
