    * Larry Sonsini reminds us of why we should use the phone, and NOT email, if we’re going to do something sketchy. Also, his spelling and typing skills aren’t perfect.

    Morning Docket: 09.08.06

    The brilliant young lawyers who clerk at the Supreme Court, after hanging out with the justices for a year, can head to the private sector and collect signing bonuses of $200,000 (and up).

    * That’s interesting: crossword guru Will Shortz is a UVA Law alum. And we love the opening question of this interview — even if it’s not terribly PC. [TJ’s Double Play] * The saucy blog commenter who (unintentionally) got Lee Siegel’s TNR blog taken down: Kramer Levin associate Joseph Schwartz, self-described “reluctant lawyer” and “frustrated” […]
