Attorneys that work with, or for, Stephen Barrett do not do well.
David Wilzig, one of Barrett’s latest personal attorneys, is developing significant problems. He was suing, obviously working with Barrett, a slew of Biological Dentists, each case mirroring the last, with the same tired refrain – that “Biological Dentistry is quackery, blah, blah, blah, blah.” Although Wilzig doesn’t call bobbie baratz (Robert S.
