    Scooter Freed! Open Thread

    Well, that was fast. Smile, Scooter! President George W. Bush has just commuted your sentence! The President wiped away Libby’s prison term, but the $250,000 fine will stand. Here’s the grant of executive clemency and the President’s statement, which reads in part: I respect the jury’s verdict. But I have concluded that the prison sentence […]

(The full article is behind the TimesSelect barricade, but you can read it for free here.) The site, avvo.com, allows people to look up lawyers by specialty and zip code and see ranked lists of […]

    Libby to Jail? Decision Time for W!

    All eyes turn toward President George W. Bush today, as a three-judge panel of the DC Circuit (Sentelle, Henderson, and Tatel) denied Scooter Libby’s request to stay out of an orange jumpsuit while he appeals his conviction for perjury and obstruction of justice. Today’s decision further increases pressure on President Bush to pardon or commute […]

    WilmerHale Summers: “Where’s Our Raise?”

    Are WilmerHale summer associates missing out on the salary bump? Wilmer recently raised first-year salaries to $160,000, and you’d think the firm’s summers would be earning that salary as well.
