    * Yeah he told a client he’d waive his legal fees “in exchange for a sexual encounter with Client and her daughters” (emphasis added), but you know, he was “just teasing.” [Legal Profession Blog]

    * Hipster lawyers. Seriously. That’s how they market themselves. Their office is even a repurposed factory. They’re in LA now, but you know they’re just dying to move to Portland. [LA Weekly]

    * Are you following these Biglaw managing partners on Twitter? Because LOL totally RT worthy. [Bloomberg BNA / Big Law Business]

    * Three Wisconsin Supreme Court justices skipped out on Marquette’s swearing in ceremony. One more development in the ongoing bats**t insane happenings on that court that previously included “[conservative Justice] Prosser put his hands on the neck of [liberal Justicee] Bradley in front of four of the other justices as they argued about a case.” [Milwaukee Journal Sentinel]

    * I get called out for being clickbaity. But I’m really just indirectly teaching lawyers lessons in marketing they really should learn. [Law and More]

    * What would an interview with Tom Brady about Deflategate look like? [Coverage Opinions]

    * The Irish same-sex marriage referendum hit a snag when someone realized the Irish language version would probably render heterosexual marriages unconstitutional. If you can’t write a neutral version of the law without encountering this problem… kind of proves a point, doesn’t it? [The Irish Times]

    * R.I.P. Bob Foster, former dean of University of South Carolina School of Law . [The State]

    * I’ve got a feeling “Bart Simpson” isn’t going to get a fair trial from this judge. [Lowering the Bar]

    * The Supreme Court strikes a blow for copyright sanity by telling publishers that they can’t go after people reselling books published overseas. Now the only incentives to move your publishing operation overseas are the cents per hour wages and the lax health and safety standards. [Volokh Conspiracy]

    * The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is… the same bad guy with a gun. [Legal Juice]

    * Following up yesterday’s link to Professor Richard Epstein’s AMA, Ken White of Popehat exposed himself to the same onslaught. [Reddit]

    * About 11 years too late, the NFL rescinded its ridiculous “Tuck Rule,” which was always hard to understand, but basically ruled that an otherwise obvious fumble allowed the player to ditch his actress baby momma and marry a Victoria’s Secret model. [USA Today]

    * This guy is VERY specific about what gigs he’s willing to play. And he’s also, apparently, a registered sex offender. [Lawyers, Guns & Money]
