    Out of Office Memo

    To quote The Bard, “Brevity is the soul of wit.” So I’ll make this vacation memo witty. (Elie writes great vacation memos, but I don’t aspire to his standards.) I’m going on vacation, from today until Monday, November 8. And unlike my usual “vacations,” which involve constant checking of the Crackberry, this time I’m going […]

    A Response to the Boycotters of Above the Law

    Morning Docket: 09.07.10

    Call me Juggalo Law. In spite of my functional illiteracy and a penchant for juvenile name-calling, I finished second in the Morning Docket writer competition.
