An August 6, 2011 letter to the editor in the Savannah Morning News, written by Tea Partier Jeanne Seaver, painted the work of lawyers representing farm workers as frivolous. The litigation to protect their rights as US citizens to agricultural employment over workers imported from Mexico was colored as frivolous and anti-agriculture, though the lawyers had been successful in 28 of their 29 court cases, and agricultural employers are like any other employer in the eyes of the law. Obviously, the courts disagree with the idea that the cases were frivolous.
Savannah attorney Wade Herring wrote a powerful letter in response. Read his August 12, 2011 response.
