Sympathy for destroyers

Document Actions
In response to the story about a judge ordering environmentalists to post a $10,000 bond, rather than focus on the amount of the bond, or the legitimacy or strength of the case, HCN could have openly debated the chilling effect of prohibitive costs on the public’s right to environmental justice (HCN, 2/6/06: Judge orders litigating enviros to pony up). Or, it could have reconsidered its outrageous previous statement that Molloy is the "greenest judge in the West" (HCN, 2/16/04: Jurisdiction shopping made simple). True to form, HCN’s sympathy for the destroyers of the environment outshines its regard for those trying to protect it.
