James P. Tuthill, a lecturer at the law school at the University of California, Berkeley. "Those Contracts Can Be Voided". New York Times, Room for Debate. March 17, 2009 - "If we can’t find a way to void these egregious payments and recoup them, then we have a more serious problem because our legal system has grievously failed us by rewarding those who have wrought this economic destruction. Such a systemic failure will destroy confidence in our entire legal system."
