"D.C. Law Firm Suspends Woman Who Worked as Escort"

ABC News finds another person involved in the growing D.C. Madam scandal: "A legal secretary at one of Washington's most prominent and well-connected law firms, Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP, has been suspended after telling her bosses she secretly worked at night for the escort service run by the so-called D.C. Madam, Jeane Palfrey. "The woman both serviced clients and, at times, helped to run the business, Palfrey told ABC News in an interview to be broadcast on '20/20' Friday. "The firm said it would not make her name public. "According to e-mails the woman sent to Palfrey... Read more →

"Sunshine and Judge Seidlin"

Have to point to this very smart blog post about Judge Seidlin, of "judging on TV" fame: "In 1933, Supreme Court Justice Louis D. Brandeis advised, 'Sunlight is the greatest disinfectant.' True to this notion, Florida is known as the Sunshine State not only for its weather -- it has long been a leader in open government. But when it comes to cameras in the courtroom, does openness serve an injustice? "After watching Judge Larry Seidlin's on-camera antics in the Anna Nicole Smith proceedings, Norm Pattis thinks so. At his blog Crime & Federalism, he says Seidlin singlehandedly rests the... Read more →

"PBS Series Spotlights the Supreme Court's Past & Present"

History, drama, games, timelines, personalities...did I mention games? What's not to like? "At the rare times the Supreme Court pops into the consciousness of the public, it is usually because of a vexing case or, more recently, a personnel change or two. Rarely is there a chance to step back and look at the Court's history or its evolving role in the life of the nation. "PBS makes a vitally important effort to do just that in a four-part documentary, The Supreme Court, which begins airing this week. It is a must-see series that takes the viewer back to the...

CNN's Nancy Grace Sued Over 'Grilling' that 'Led to Suicide'

When does an aggressive interviewer go too far? Guess we'll find out with this wrongful death lawsuit: "Relatives of a mother who committed suicide after CNN's Nancy Grace aggressively questioned her about the disappearance of her son sued the network and the talk-show host Tuesday, accusing Grace of pushing the woman over the edge. "Melinda Duckett shot herself to death on Sept. 8, one day after taping a segment on Grace's CNN Headline News show in which Grace interrogated Duckett about her whereabouts on the August day that 2-year-old Trenton Duckett was reported missing. The network aired the segment after... Read more →

"Justice: Pretty Woman"

Finally, a couple of paralegals actually have lines, scenes, & meaning in a TV show! You don't even have to guess what work they do. This FOX show recognizes the importance & permanence of paralegals in a law firm. Gooooo bad TV! "Oh my God. Did anybody else get dizzy while watching this? Maybe the target audience on this show is the MTV crowd. Jeez. All the handheld camerawork, quick edits and zooms made me queasy. That seemed new. Also new this week were the banners for different times in the case (i.e. 'Self Surrender', etc.). Kinda hokey and unnecessary.... Read more →

"Offering Truth and Illusion and Nothing but the Two"

Finally! A TV show featuring paralegals as well as lawyers! "Celebrity trial lawyers are supposed to be flamboyant and theatrical. Yet the high-priced defense attorneys in Jerry Bruckheimer’s new courtroom drama on Fox, “Justice,” are not at all like F. Lee Bailey or Johnnie Cochran. They are as grimly focused and humorless as the crime lab detectives of 'CSI.' "It’s the pretrial work that is the showy centerpiece of this series. Media spin, jury consultants and focus groups are the DNA swabs and bloodstain-pattern analysis reports of 'Justice.' And that makes it kind of fun: it is as if someone... Read more →

"Supreme Court Pushes Back on Televised Proceedings"

Bad news! It would be great fun to watch the Supremes in action: "Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy pushed back strongly Tuesday against a bill pending in the Senate that would require the Court to televise its proceedings. "'Mandating direct televised proceedings would be inconsistent with the deference and etiquette that should apply between the branches,' Kennedy said in response to questions from House members at the Court's annual budget hearing Tuesday. 'We feel very strongly that this matter should be left to the courts.'" Read more →
