The LA Times Calls Lockyer's Lawsuit Bluff

We just checked out an op-ed piece in the LAT and we have to agree — it's simply not sporting for California AG Bill Lockyer to sue automakers for obeying the law. Every new car sold by the major automakers in California meets CARB emissions standards, so how can an agent of the state sue people for obeying the law? It sets a ridiculous precedent. Matters such as this need to be handled via the legislature, not by tying up the courts, which have more pressing matters to attend to. We expected more from you, Bill. Punto basta.
