Connecticut jury: Blumenthal wrongly ruined business

by Walter Olson on February 12, 2010

At Point of Law I’ve got a post up about a significant embarrassment — $18 million worth — for veteran Connecticut Attorney General (and now Senate candidate) Richard Blumenthal.

Blumenthal is best known outside Connecticut for suing the Atlantic Coast Conference over the defection of Virginia Tech, Boston College, and the University of Miami from the Big East to the ACC. While the defections were bad for southerm sports fans (the ACC diluted itself from the dominant basketball conference to a mere top tier conference, and hasn’t gained any prominence in football), that was hardly Blumenthal’s business.

Yet he has no prominent verdicts against the insurance companies that dominate Connecticut’s economy. Why is that?
