Are you kidding? What else is there right now?

Government attorney, sex scandal, 6 figure job in jeopardy. What the hell else do we need? It's got the makings of a cheesy tv legal drama. Where is Ray Kazmarick, when you need him?

GT binged and now it must purge.

Anyone confirm these GT rumors I'm hearing?

GT?

GT = Greenberg Traurig, AKA the only real law firm in town

Purge? I heard they no-offered the 2 summers they had. Are they also canning some real attys?

So my boss occasionally has meetings with the partner in the office next to mine. I can almost hear what he's saying by putting my ear up to the wall, but not quite. Should I invest in a stethoscope to eavesdrop on their conversations, or should I just continue in ignorance of what's going on in the firm?

This blog is so funny. I want you to know that in my high school everyone reads it at lunch time. We are trying to figure out what high school put this blog out. You guys rock.

Have you guys got any feedback from real lawyers?

does anyone know the inmates name or charges? Obviously it was child molestation but does anyone know anything else?

No, YOU rock, 9:59.

The alleged BJ is a lie. She gave him a photo of herself. Don't know if it was rated X or a glamour shot or a family Christmas card photo, but no blow job on film or video.
Don't all you gossipy cannibal bitches feel bad?

Off topic, ever since my wife read the BJ story, she has been, how shall we say, very generous.

Do what every other associate does that wants more information or wants to keep his/her -- forego the stethascope, buy a set of knee pads, and just relax your jaw as your bosses chub goes in. It is the ONLY factor I consider in deciding which associates are going to stay.

Sorry for the delayed response. Such is life for those of us with a job.
Listen, I don't have to tell you my sources. This is a tabloid website for crying out loud.
I will tell you my sources are unimpeachable and time will prove me right.
I do not know the attorney in question. She is not my friend. We've never met.
But that doesn't mean I'm going to stand by and let a bunch of sharks devour her, her career and her family over wild and crude speculation.
What you guys are doing borders on the criminal. You might be anonymous, but she certainly isn't.

@ 1:29 - I know this attorney, we're not friends but I know her on a professional level and I really hope your sources are right. Giving an inmate a picture seems a lot more believable. I realize we all love the juicy gossip, and oral sex sounds is more "sexy" but I still can't see this particular attorney engaging in oral sex with an inmate. I just don't believe it

@ 2:07, yes, I understand that. However, Ted Bundy had some mental issues whereas this would be a lack in judgment, doubtful it would be a sign of a mental issue. So what I am saying is that I cannot see her having this lack in judgment.

Remember a couple weeks ago when a slew of posts stuck up for Stan Walton after Judge Cadish threw him in the slammer for contempt? None of those posters could believe that he would do anything untoward.

Ted Bundy had mental issues? Well he isn't the only one. If you are going down on sex offenders I am guessing you might have them to. Thing is, Ted had lots of people convinced he was a smart, upcoming attorney who was politicaly connected. He worked at the rape crisis line and he worked on Governor Evans' campaign. Was a law student as well... People LOVED the guy....

@2:21, that would be NAIVE, not "nieve."

I have it on a VERY good source that Ms. Roundtree (definitely no longer a Mrs.) definitely did the act - not just a picture.

And how does blowing an inmate not involve mental issues?! A lapse of judgment is a one night stand, not risking one's career, family, and reputation just to put a crusty dick in one's mouth.

The stories go on and on. People simply are not what they seem. I am not comfortable with rpeserving the oh so goodness and light rep of someone who celarly is not oh so goodness and light. Not Walton, not Roundtree, not anyone who violates their oath or violates the law in these ways or both.

And who the hell cape crusader are you? LET us do something? HA HA HA HA! In devouring that guys dick she devoured her own career and family. That all lies at her feet. A presumtion of innocense is a legal term of art not applicable in the public forum. Nobody is presumed innocent except by the jury and judge. The prosecutor certainly never presumes the defendant to be innocent of the charges filed. If he did, there would never be charges. Get off your high horse and pull on some big girl panties. Ya want to pole dance on a sex offenders dick, this is what you get.

This discussion regarding “squarebush” makes me embarrassed to be admitted to the Nevada bar. There has been so much discussion over this issue and not one of you super attorneys have been able to spot the key issue here, and the most important factor present in this case.

We can discuss the credibility of the sources, lapse in judgment, etc. all day long, but all of this is irrelevant and there is only one fact that needs to be obtained.

Spit or swallow?

Please vote now.

I vote swallow – where else you gonna put it?

Remember several years ago the male attorney who banged his client on his office desk in front of the client's kid? All he got was a short suspension, right? That seems worse than what this lady did, so I guess if any sort of precedent is followed, she doesn't have a lot to worry about with the State Bar at least.

Anonymous said...

I see. SO the fact the other guy got away with it means she should too...though you may not be saying that at all and only saying the bar will treat it that way. I hope not because this shit has got to stop. Walton too....and I think Walton and Stacey will have criminal legal battles to worry about with their respective behavior....

The original quote as GT is the only real law firm in Nevada.

Funny. Let the law student dream about the "great life" at a big firm. Six figure salary, oh that wil go far. Fair exchange for your sole.

I remember being at a "top tier" firm right out of law school and looking at the biter old partners who were functioning alcoholics on their 10th marriage and thinking that if this is the carrot they are using to motivate young associates, they may want to consider hiring actors and locking the old codgers in on a floor away from the associates.

My 2 cents

Kenneth L. Hall (NVB#3728) was the attorney who banged the client on his desk while the 3 year old child was in the room. He also videotaped the blessed event and was seen/heard telling the kid to shut up, when the child was whining or crying.

He was suspended for a total of 41 days in 2004. I dont recall the other conditions placed on him.

NV State Bar at its finest.

Squarebush will probably be fired and will go to work for Jimmerson, Fumo or Chelini (my prediction).

Yeah because if you post on here without a JD, gremlins rip your eyes out.

I never was a good speller. I guess that makes me a "dumb" and a terrible attorney. Funny that my clients trust me with matters that can run into the hundreds of millions of dollars. I better not let them see my mistake or they will have to seek other counsel.

Maybe I can refer them to you? Do you represent Geico or Progressive?

Amazing the people who do not have any idea what really happened are so quick to judge. Only two people know what went on. Even after an investigation we still may not know the truth. It is very funny to watch those who are quick to judge, get into trouble. You know what they say about Karma.

This is a wonderful little website that you have here. Now, for what you will love about me...I was recently released from the Nevada "Correctional" system and was one of their Legal Clerks. First bit of information: NDOC are working under a "paging" system when allowing inmates access to legal research materials. meaning, other inmates have access to read your legal cases, especially Habeas Corpus.
