It doesn't surprise me that the attorney for STC advised the Society leaders
to be completely silent on the matter, up to and including refusal to
provide names of Society members as potential interviewees.

Still, overall, it's gutless.

It's gutless to not make a decision, instead holding to the reason that
someone else advised them not to say anything. The Society is not a party to
the suit and shouldn't become one, I guess.

Why would a professional association research an issue that could affect
practitioners of that profession? If a law that protects a significant
number of professionals is not followed by employers, why would the Society
go out on a limb to support the law?
