Dewey have news for you: who’s to blame for the firm’s downfall, more partner departures, and revelations about ex-chairman Steve Davis’s personal life….

* Congratulations to Jacqueline H. Nguyen on her confirmation to the Ninth Circuit. She’s the first Asian American woman to sit on a federal appellate court, so she’s earned our judicial diva title (in a good way). You go girl! [Los Angeles Times]
