Legal Eagle Wedding Watch: December 24, 2006

Legal Eagle Wedding Watch NYT wedding announcements Above the Law.jpgSoon we’ll be all caught up in Legal Eagle Wedding Watch. Here are the three couples for the weekend of December 23-24, 2006:

1. Kathryn Connor, John Ridley Jr.

2. Ilyse Langer, Steve Metzger

3. Nancy Montgomery, Leonard Lombard

Discussion of these couples appears after the jump.


1. Kathryn Connor, John Ridley Jr.
Résumé score: 7.8. Neither Kathryn nor John is a lawyer; we’ve included them because of a dearth of lawyer couples for this week (and because both of their fathers are lawyers). Kathryn is a Hamilton grad and first-grade teacher. John is an Ohio Wesleyan grad, who sells access to websites containing data about hedge funds.
Family score: 8.4. Her father is of counsel to an admiralty law firm; her mother is a special education teacher. His father is a partner in Drinker, Biddle & Reath (nice); his mother is an interior designer.
Balance score: 8.5. It’s nice that both of their dads are lawyers.
Overall score: 8.23.
2. Ilyse Langer, Steve Metzger
Résumé score: 8.6. She’s a Barnard grad (but her current occupation is unspecified). He’s a Tufts and Hofstra law grad, now at Schulte Roth & Zabel.
Family score: 8.1. Her father is a sales rep for a courier service; her mother is an ESL teacher in Queens. His mother is a resource specialist at a magnet school; his father is an assistant principal at a high school.
Balance score: 8.4.
Overall score: 8.37.
Additional comments: The officiant was Rabbi Steven Graber. Is he any relation to the sexy Judge Susan Graber (9th Cir.)?
3. Nancy Montgomery, Leonard Lombard


Résumé score: 8.2. She’s an associate professor of adolescent education at St. John’s. She graduated from Indiana University and received a Ph.D. in English education from NYU. He’s a real estate lawyer and broker, a graduate of Queens College and Boston University School of Law. (Both are a bit older: she’s 54, and he’s 63.)
Family score: 8.5. Her father is the retied CEO of an ad agency; her mother is a retired high school music teacher. His late father was a cardiologist, and his late mother was an artist.
Balance score: 8.3.
Overall score: 8.33.
THIS WEEK’S WINNING COUPLE: Not a terribly exciting week. But then again, how many people get married the day before Christmas? The winning couple: ILYSE LANGER and STEVE METZGER. Congratulations!
