WASHINGTON - Sept. 28, 2020 - PRLog -- EVENT - How and Why Activist Lawyers "Sue The Bastards"
Pioneer Describes His "Odyssey From Geek to Gigolo to Good Doer"

WASHINGTON, D.C. (September 29, 2020)  -  The media has called him "The Man Behind the Ban on Cigarette Commercials," "a Driving Force Behind the Lawsuits That Have Cost Tobacco Companies Billions of Dollars," "The Father of Potty Parity," the "Dean of Public Interest Lawyers" and "the Fastest Legal Gun in the East," an "Entrepreneur of Litigation," a "Trial Lawyer's Trial Lawyer," and, in the past, one of the "100 Most Powerful People in Washington."

His enemies have labeled him a "Legal Terrorist," "Radical Feminist," the "Osama bin Laden of Torts," a "Legal Bully" and a "Legal Bomb Thrower," a modern day "Hitler," "the Man From F.U.C.K.," a "Dangerous Threat to Capitalism," a "Legal Flamethrower," and worse.

Now public interest law professor John Banzhaf has been persuaded to tell the inside story about how he went from a geek to a gigolo to a good doer, giving up a lucrative career as a patent attorney to "Sue The Bastards," and also turn several generations of law students ("Banzhaf's Bandits") loose on the world in his unique law school course where students have to sue to earn a passing grade.

His presentation for graduates of M.I.T. (where he became one of the earliest hackers, and popularized the "FOO" which remains so popular with programmers) and of Columbia U. (where he established legal protection for the fledgling programming industry, and invented a new mathematics to measure voting power and get even with a professor) will be presented free on Wednesday, October 7th from 6:30-8:00 PM.

Admission to this free virtual event can be reserved, and more information can be found at: https://dc.alumni.columbia.edu/banzhafiii

Smokers who resent the many prohibitions on smoking he triggered, both men and women who hate his bans on ladies nights, overweight alums who are outraged with his support for shaming the obese, both sides who disagree with his proposals for transsexuals and restrooms, and many others who have been affected are expected to vigorously challenge him in an extensive Q&A following his presentation.

Fresh from two major successes fighting the COVID pandemic, Banzhaf promises to tell all, as well as take on all, during the evening.
