Stupid lawyer stories

These are probably of limited interest to anyone other than me, but here are two things of note to all of the lawyers* who read this:

  1. Kentucky trial lawyers are in a tizzy over this cartoon:

    Personally, I think it's funny. Funny -- not clever.

  2. More importantly, it's apparently okay to commit legal malpractice in Nebraska -- as long as you're addicted to drugs and alcohol.

    I am planning my next bender as I type this.

* There are three that I know of. Maybe four.

Ha. It's even funnier that they don't think it's funny.

Lawyers have no senses of humor. It's hard to be self-deprecating when you're that self-important.

I said the exact same thing about the cartoon. Now excuse me while I go download an application to waive into Nebraska.

No more bar applications for me, or I'd be joining you. (Three jurisdictions are more than enough.)

Seriously, though -- allowing alcoholics to commit malpractice is a pretty big loophole. I mean, a large portion of the lawyers I know are drunks.

Except me. I never ever drink. Especially not vodka.
