Larry Lessig is a brave guy.

  1. I am the plaintiff in the case against the American Boychoir.

    It is not possible for me to convey how helpful Professor Lessig has been to me in this battle. Professor Lessig is truly very courageous and a real hero.

    We’ve been fighting in New Jersey to be heard in the state’s courts, but New Jersey is one of three states that seems to protect non-profits from lawsuits by virtue of the state’s Charitable Immunity Act.

    Victims have been waging a parallel battle in the legislature to have a bill posted that would end charitable immunity in cases of child sexual abuse, but we can’t get the Assembly Speaker, Albio Sires, to post the legislation.

    It would be very helpful if we could flood Mr. Siries’ office with e-mails asking him to post the legislation for a vote. PLEASE e-mail the Assemblyman at:
