    Judge Kinkeade has long had his anti-business thumb on the scale for the plaintiffs‘ bar. So he may feel compelled to rule for Mr. Schneiderman and Ms. Healey since both are alumni, political allies and beneficiaries of that bar. But just as Steve Donziger was pursued to the ends of the earth by Chevron for his shameless fraud, so too should Schneiderman, Healey and other speech-suppressing Stalinists with whom they‘ve conspired against Exxon expect to be pursued. Even if the question of personal jurisdiction has to go all the way to the SCOTUS, with a new associate justice firmly ensconced by then, truth and justice in this case will inevitably prevail and the careers of Schneiderman and Healey will be over.
