Our ERISA Hotties Contest is definitely steaming up the windows at pension law offices around the country. Our email inbox is overflowing with ERISA erotica. Apparently, many of you want to engage in some “prohibited transactions” with our bevy of ERISA beauties…
(If you haven’t done so already, you can vote on the ERISA women here, and the ERISA men here. Knock yourselves out!)
We’ve received some emails asking about when the voting will close. The polls will close on Tuesday, September 12, at 1 PM (Eastern time). We’ve chosen this date to allow the candidates some time to campaign (e.g., through blast emails to the entire firm, telephone calls to internet-savvy grandmothers, etc.). We’ve chosen this time to allow West Coast readers to vote one last time when they get into the office that morning.
As we did with the men, we contacted all of the female contestants for comment. We haven’t heard back from them yet, but we’ll let you know if and when we do.
We did hear back from one more of the male candidates, however: the hunky Jordan Backman, currently in second place (but gaining fast on Professor Wolk). Jordan’s gracious, Oscar-ready statement appears after the jump.
Here’s what Jordan wrote in response to our earlier message:
Hey, thanks for including me in this contest. It is an honor and a privilege just to be nominated, what with so many other qualified candidates. I would have responded earlier, but I take my ERISA lawyering seriously and was at work until late in the evening yesterday researching a 409A issue. If you’re anything like me, just the sound of “409A” sends shivers up your spine. While I may not be the most “experienced” ERISA attorney, I make up in eagerness what I lack in age.
Anyway, thanks to everyone who voted/votes for me. I appreciate your support.
Good luck to all the other candidates (you’ll need it).
