"The Market for Bad Legal Scholarship": Green v. Simon

Bruce Green (Fordham) replies to William Simon's shocking "j'accuse" that we noted last year.  I'm not sure Professor Simon comes off looking too good after Professor Green is done, but I readily admit this is not my field.

Of course, the "market for bad legal scholarship" (though not in Green's precise sense) is huge--and thanks to blogs, it's now even bigger!

UPDATE:  Professor Simon's rejoinder is available here.  You may skip to the conclusion, on the very last page, to get a flavor for the tenor of this exchange.
