Where have you guys been? We've been all over this guy today! And it looks like he's leaving the practice of law based on some meanies leaving comments:

Quote:
The Legal Profession Is No Longer Prestigious

As a result of the recent events that have occurred these past couple of days in regards to Attorney Rose Clayton’s posting of our now not so private email conversation, I feel compelled to make this last and final blog and say goodbye to this “prestigious” profession.

When looking back at everything that has occurred since May 27, 2010, when Attorney Clayton posted our email conversation, it now makes me wonder if lawyers have lost their prestige status. As every lawyer and law student knows, 49 states have adopted the Model Rules of Professional Responsibility. These model rules were drafted and adopted for lawyers to adhere to them. Do lawyers really adhere to the model rules? I will leave that question for you to answer. After sitting back and taking the time to reflect on the series of events that have occurred, it makes me wonder if lawyers forget about the model rules after successfully passing the Multistate Professional Responsibility Exam. When a job applicant communicates to a prospective employer, he or she does not expect that their private conversations would become public. Unless I have been under a rock, I do not believe that this has become a new trend when applying for a job. I wonder what it will be next? Will attorneys be running to the internet to disclose confidential information provided by the client?

I have come to the conclusion that lawyers have lost their prestigious status and wonder why so many students flock to law schools after obtaining a four year degree to become one. Face it, there are no jobs available and, if there are, Attorney Rose Clayton has a position of a lifetime for you! Do you want to receive four quarterly bonuses equal to four weeks pay, plus complimentary lunch all while receiving a massage? Is the legal field prestigious when events like this occur? I certainly do not believe so. This profession is sinking fast and it is troubling to me. Since Friday, I have had no sleep. I have read over each comment, both on “The Docket” and “Above the Law”, over and over. For someone who takes this profession seriously, the comments make me sick. In fact, many comments are by attorneys. The inaccuracies are too numerous to refute in detail but I will, however, respond to one of them here. First and foremost, no- I am not dead as one comment indicates. I have still yet to find any “Breaking News” on my apparent suicide. I find it quite humorous that some people would sit in front of their computer and try to pick out every typo and legal inaccuracy in the candid private email’s sent to Attorney Clayton.

After taking the time to reflect on the recent events, I have decided to not become a member of the bar, at least not in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. This decision is based on the lack of professionalism by the bar community here, and especially the lack of judgment by Attorney Clayton by publishing the personal emails.

What will I do now? Will I ever go back to law school and obtain my J.D.? who knows. I will let the cards fall where they land.

Please note that this website will be terminated within the next few days.

Hello,

Due to a complaint for a movie you have made, I am obligated to delete this movie because of its defamatory content.

Best regards,

So I made sure the new one had nothing defamatory in it...
