Legal Nirvana

Nothing warms the hearts of corporate executives at public companies like the vision of class action lawyers being locked up in a cell. Especially when the visualization includes the lawyers responsible for 50% of the class action suits in the United States over a decade period.

Even more amusing is having one of the lawyers derided in the front page of a major newspaper for declaring that he is innocent, despite all the obvious evidence to the contrary. I expect that lawyer jokes will be at the top of the list in the executive happy-hour circuit during the month of June.

Serving Time, but Lacking Remorse

Q: What's wrong with lawyer jokes?
A: Lawyers don't think they're funny and other people don't think they're jokes.
