In a column published on Law News Network last month (Out of Class, Sept. 14), Rory Little, a former assistant U.S. attorney, rightly observes that it was “an honor to have been permitted to stand up in court” and represent the United States in prosecuting law breakers. Yet, because he found the job of enforcing the nation’s laws rewarding, Little announces that he will not participate in a class action on behalf of all Department of Justice attorneys seeking to remedy the DOJ’s violations of federal wage law.

Apparently, he is oblivious to the irony.
