The Daily Journal quotes Professor Allen Weiner in a story about Yahoo's settlement with Chinese journalists who were jailed after the company shared information about them with Chinese authorities:

"When there's a prospect of having the plaintiffs win or a company having to pay settlement in a case like this, you could expect to see more lawsuits," said Allen Weiner, a senior lecturer at Stanford law school.

...

"I'd expect to see more litigation, not less, until there's clear guidance on the law," Weiner said.
