    ‘Whereupon there is screaming’

    This must be the most profanity-laced piece of transcript since Aaron Wider’s deposition. It’s the transcript of the sentencing hearing before Judge Frederic Block (E.D.N.Y.) at which Assistant U.S. Attorney Carolyn Pokorny was attacked by the defendant, before the court reporter and defense counsel tackled the assailant. The transcript was prepared by Ron Tolkin, the […]

    Lawsuit of the Day: On Law and Order’s Case

    The long-running NBC TV show, Law and Order, promotes its shows with claims of “ripped from the headlines,” but always includes a disclaimer within each episode that the story and characters are fictional. Questionable. Well, one attorney is not happy about having his likeness ripped from the headlines of this New York Times story from […]

    Why Are Wet Whiners at Winston?

    The Washington office of Winston & Strawn was the site of a “mystery protest” this afternoon. For more details and a photo, see here. Wonkette’s tipster writes: “What they did to deserve a protest is beyond me.” Our guess? Fashion-forward feminists, really pissed off about this. Mystery Protest On Rain-Slicked D.C. Corner!

    Judge of the Day: Richard Sasso

    Technically, this New Jersey judge is our Ex-Judge of the Day, since he retired in January for “health reasons.” He is accused of PUI (presiding under the influence), bullying people in his courtroom, and tearing up a go-go bar. Oh, is that unusual behavior for a judge? From NJ.com: The Advisory Committee on Judicial Conduct […]
