Now, the New York Times has issued the second article in the series.

While Part 1 looked at the big picture – that the Supreme Court is essentially allowing big businesses to break laws in pursuit of heedless and lawless profit – Part 2 focuses much more on particularly harrowing individual stories.  It is plain that a lot of care and effort went into finding and vetting and putting these stories together, and the New York Times reporters have done a remarkable job telling the stories.
