Bitter News, 5-11-10

Headlines from the Bitter Newsroom as visually arousing as Playboy’s new 3D centerfold:

• Does the MBA way of life require a law-style code of ethics?  We’re the right ones?  [The Am Law Daily]

• President Obama’s decision to nominate Elena Kagan—AKA Paul Blart: Mall Cop (see video below)—to the Supreme Court is sinking in with both sides of the aisle.  But how can you really get a feel for her without seeing an old picture of her playing softball?  (Because it proves she’s a lez, of course.) Since people come out of the woodwork to claim personal familiarity with the famous and deceased, this is no different.  Her high school “friends” are saying she was the smartest.  Jeffrey Toobin (a media lightening rod himself these days) says she was “funny” during their time together as Harvard Law classmates.  And one of her former students professes that she “massacred me intellectually.” Here we go…

News continued below video.

• Oh, wait.  Thank God someone remembered to ask: Who’s going to take Kagan’s spot as Solicitor General?  And then who’s going to take that person’s spot when that person becomes Solicitor General?  And then who will take that person’s spot?  Uggg.  This is hard.  [WSJ Law Blog]

• You’re only important til the day someone calls you down to his office to fire you ass and turn you into a legal pariah.  Just like in the event of an earthquake, have your professional disaster plan worked out ahead of time.  And run out of the building.  [ABA Journal]

• There are f-bombs and there are tweet-bombs.  One can get you sent to the slammer.  [CNET]

Speaking of f-bombs, let’s talk about Tiger Woods.  (And this has nothing to do with his bulging dick sore neck.) Divorce lawyer and “international custody guru” Thomas Sasser will be repping Woods in his divorce from Elin Nordegren.  [The Vancouver Sun]

• The conclusion of a seven-month battle between a scorned woman and “a member of the Lucky Sperm Club” for a junior associate position at Stern, Lockhart & Gardner will finally come to an end during Tuesday’s finale episode of the non-lawyer-written legal drama The Good Wife[Fox News]
