Legal Eagle Wedding Watch 2.22: Six Non Blondes

champagne glasses small.jpgWe interrupt today’s blood-letting to bring you the latest from the NYT weddings page. In keeping with the dark mood around here, all of this week’s contestants are brunettes. Here they are:

1. Sophie Jensen and Robert Lalley

2. Vicky Hallett and Jeffrey Miller

3. Gillian Deutch and Daniel Solinsky

See which of these newlyweds still have jobs, after the jump.

(Buy them an ice bucket.)

The Case:

– This two-lawyer pair met as students at Albany Law School. The bride was cum laude at Union College; the groom went to SUNY-Buffalo and has a master’s from SUNY-Albany.

– Sophie began a new job this week as an assistant district attorney in Binghamton, NY. Robert works as legal counsel for BAE Systems.

The Case Against:

– Everything in their write-up happened in the state of New York, yet none of it happened in New York City.

(Buy them some spaghetti tongs.)

The Case:

– This Washington wedding features the fitness columnist for the Washington Post (the bride), and a 2L at American Law School (the groom).

– Vicky’s undergraduate degree is from Harvard; Jeffrey graduated from Haverford and has a master’s in European politics from Oxford. He was also a Fulbright fellow at Berlin’s Humboldt University, studying the German welfare system.

The Case Against:

– Not many Harvard girls dream of one day standing under the huppah with an American Law student. Vicky must be marrying for love — or the Fulbright.

(Buy them a cutting board.)

The Case:

– Another two-lawyer pair, this one from Yeshiva’s Cardozo School of Law. The bride, who apparently goes by “Gilly,” is a graduate of MIT; the groom went to Penn.

– The bride is employed! She’s an associate in DLA Piper’s New York office.

The Case Against:

– Daniel’s employment status, on the other hand, is murky. The write-up only says vaguely that he “is a litigation lawyer in New York.” We wonder if he’s a “litigation lawyer” in the same sense that those poor 440 souls “work at Latham.”

The Verdict:

It’s a sign of these troubled times that LEWW must reluctantly award top honors to two Albany grads simply because both of them happen to be employed. Congratulations, Team Jensen-Lalley.
