Friday Follies 2.19

Florida attorney barred from visiting client in jail both with and without bra.

A 34-year-old Nevada woman was sentenced to life in prison after being convicted of lewdness with a minor under 14 after kissing a friend’s 13-year-old child, putting his hand on her breast, and offering to have sex with him. She was wearing a bra.

Since there seems to be a trend here, a woman who claims to have the largest breasts in Russia suing a Swiss airline, claiming she injured them when she hit the seat in front of her during some midair turbulence. The woman says she normally flies business class to accommodate her chest size but, to quote the news article, the distance between the seats on this flight “forced her to use her breasts as airbags.” (The Legal Satyricon)

Returning to Florida, after being arrested for choking his wife, a man offered the the police officer an interesting defense: “If you were married, you would understand.” (Jonathan Turley)

A 74-year-old Boise, Idaho, woman arrested after pouring mayonnaise in a county library’s book drop box “is a person of interest in a yearlong spree of condiment-related crimes of the same sort.” (MobyLives)

Karmic justice? “A Balinese teenager caught in the act of intercourse with a cow passed out on Friday when he was forced to marry the animal in a ceremony witnessed by hundreds of curious onlookers.” (Dumb as a Blog)

Why people hate lawyers, ad infinitum: Lawyers who settled a class action lawsuit over leakage in VW sunroofs for $8 million in cash (about $1.60 per class member) are seeking $23 million in attorneys’ fees.

An odd twist on the perfectly understandable “no sex with clients” rule. Saying she’s your client when she isn’t and having sex in a prison interview room will also get you disbarred. (Above the Law)

…were we to act but in cases where no contrary opinion of a lawyer can be had, we should never act.
