Lott v. Levitt (cont.):

Concurring Opinions guest blogger Michael Abramowicz provides an update on John Lott's defamation lawsuit against Freakonomics co-author Steven Levitt, complete with commentary. Jim Lindgren has written about this litigation on the VC here.

[Note: Those wishing to comment on the litigation can do so at Concurring Opinions.]

UPDATE: Glenn Reynolds' take: "a lawsuit that shouldn't have been brought, over a chain of events that shouldn't have happened, and involving accusations that shouldn't have been made."

Also, Keith Sharfman wonders whether the stakes in the case are as low as Abramowicz suggests.
