Abstract

In a recent paper Christopher Heath Wellman argues that - with some important qualifications - there are no procedural rights. And it's not as if he is squeamish about his examples: even someone who is convicted and punished by lottery is not wronged - their rights are not violated - if in fact they are guilty of the relevant crime. I respond, rejecting Wellman's conclusion and argument. I also show how the discussion has important wider implications.
