SCRIBES BOOK AWARD Gregory Klass has been honored with a 2006 Scribes Book Award from the American Society of Legal Writers for co-writing Insincere Promises: The Law of Misrepresented Intent. A professor at Georgetown University Law Center, Klass received the award in August during the annual meeting of the American Bar Association. Insincere Promises addresses a variety of issues relating to promissory fraud — the making of a promise one never intends to keep (or that one intends to break) — and offers suggestions for courts and practitioners on how to litigate and decide such cases. Established in 1961, the Scribes Book Award is presented annually to honor the best work of legal scholarship published during the previous year. — Nathan Carlile
