Corporate Reparations: Today’s Boston Globe reports that a class action reparations lawsuit has been filed against several corporations that may have profited from slavery, including Aetna and FleetBoston.

Are the current stockholders of FleetBoston really morally or legally culpable for the actions of a “predecessor bank” in 1808?
