Institute for Justice Fights for Justice

What else? IJ is off making the statists angry again, always trying to cut back the power of the government. Here's what they did for regular folks up against Leviathan in August:

First, they tell the government in Ohio that you can't just call land "blighted" in order to take it away from private citizens. Government: "Who knew?"

Then, they tried to get the Florida courts to let children go to school. Government: "We're still trying to reconcile this with our truancy law; we'll get back to you."

And finally, they ask Oklahoma to open up the state casket market to fair competition instead of just funeral directors. Government: "Overcharging grieving taxpayers is in the best interest of the state."

More IJ on the case next month.
