    Non-Sequiturs

    Non-Sequiturs: 05.11.15

    * Lindsay Lohan is heading back to community service. This time someone decided the party girl should be helping out at a preschool. She’s apparently working down the block from me so I’ll keep my eyes out. [Jezebel]

    * Exploring the labor issues involved in ESPN’s hasty and petty considered decision to fire Bill Simmons because he is willing to speak honestly about Roger Goodell. [PrawfsBlawg]

    * Whoa. Vermont State Senator arrested late last week accused of raping three women. One of the alleged victims was a 15-year-old intern at the time. And then the court released the victims’ contact information in direct violation of a judge’s order. [VT Digger]

    * Next time you’re in Yellowstone, be careful what you do with your photos: Wyoming just made it illegal to give them to a government agency lest they use the photos to figure out how badly Wyoming is poisoning the environment. Rationality! [Slate]

    * Bernardo Roman III, who had earned more than a little ire for his representation of the Miccosukee Tribe has, apparently, gotten canned. [South Florida Lawyers]

    * Meanwhile, Native Americans are both underrepresented and ignored in the profession. [The National Law Journal]

    * Staci spoke with Nicole Abboud about Women in the Law. [The Gen Why Lawyer]

    * Shearman partner Richard Hsu chats with Nathan Sawaya, the attorney who left it behind to become The Lego Brick Artist. [Hsu Untied]

  • Three cheers for "cultural capital."

    Antonin Scalia, Biglaw, Canada, Department of Justice, Election Law, Gay, Jed Rakoff, Law Professors, Law Schools, Morning Docket, Native Americans, Partner Issues, S.D.N.Y., SCOTUS, Supreme Court, Wall Street

    Morning Docket: 12.17.13

    * Despite his hatred of 3L classes like “Law and Unicorns,” Justice Scalia believes that the third year of law school is necessary — perhaps a necessary evil, but still necessary. [Memphis Daily News]

    * “[T]his excuse — sometimes labeled the ‘too big to jail’ excuse — is disturbing, frankly….” The eminently quotable Judge Rakoff is at it again, this time with harsh words for the DOJ. [New York Times]

    * According to the latest survey from Citi Private Bank’s Law Firm Group, managing partners think that 2014 will be better than 2013. This means bonuses will be the same next year. [Am Law Daily]

    * Attorneys from Wiley Rein are fighting for $2 million in fees in the wake of their SCOTUS win in the Shelby County Voting Rights Act case. The firm’s quest has been called “absurd.” [National Law Journal]

    * “The record is utterly devoid of any evidence of criminal intent or intentional misconduct.” It turns out that Guy Lewis and Michael Tein, the attorneys accused of malpractice by the Miccosukee Indians, weren’t bad after all. [Daily Business Review]

    * Rather than pegging its value at $1 million, a professor from a fourth-tier law school is promoting the “non-economic value” of a law degree. Can “cultural capital” repay your loans? [WSJ Law Blog (sub. req.)]

    * “[N]o law school in Canada should be allowed to weed out gay students.” Too bad. Trinity Western University, the law school that bans gay “sexual intimacy,” received preliminary approval. [Globe and Mail]

    * Law school specialization and you: follow these three simple steps to help you decide which niche you’ll be unable to find a job in after you graduate. [Law Admissions Lowdown / U.S. News & World Report]
