In the meantime, we’re going to introduce a participatory element to Legal Eagle Wedding Watch. A number of you have complained about our scoring. Some think we’re too harsh, while others accuse us of “grade inflation.” Rating couples in categories like their career achivements and looks is obviously a subjective business.
So now we’ll turn over the proceedings to you, and let the voice of democracy be heard. We’d like to crown a Legal Eagle Wedding Watch “Couple of the Month” for August 2006 — but we need your help.
We’re taking the winning couples from each week in August — plus the winning couple from the last week in July, ’cause we don’t want them to feel left out — and pitting them against each other in an ATL reader poll. Here it is (competitors listed alphabetically by bride’s last name):

Which of these fabulous couples should be crowned “Couple of the Month” for August 2006?
Cecily Baskir and John Freedman
Carrie Gombos and David Altschuler
Carletta Higginson and Christopher Poindexter
Sharmila Sohoni and Christopher Egleson
Berit Winge and Marc Berger

Don’t remember these couples? To refresh your recollection, Above the Law’s prior write-ups of each couple — which include their complete scores, plus a link to their original New York Times wedding announcement — appear after the jump.

Plenty of fodder for this week’s edition of Legal Eagle Wedding Watch, in which we review selected lawyer nuptials from the New York Times wedding announcements — and assign numerical scores to each couple. We rate them in three to four categories: on their résumés, their families, their couple balance, and their beauty (if pictured).
Today four couples are vying for the coveted title of highest-flying legal eagles:

1. Cecily Baskir, John Freedman

2. Arminda Bepko, Victor Suthammanont

3. Alexandra Block, Curtis Weiss

4. Christine Varnado, Anthony O’Rourke

So which couple will prevail? Find out, after the jump.
