Hot takes from the site mods. Why are you two allowed to be insulting?QContinuum wrote:Nice bit of objectivity there, nix. You aren't even doing objct and I the courtesy of "both-sidesing" the issue. objct and I aren't the ones making over-the-top (and frankly reckless) assertions.

The lawyers who actually do L&E have said your argument has no legs, it certainly doesn't have any relevance to anyone currently facing salary cuts/deferrals, and at this point it's become a pissing contest about hypotheticals.
Do you have any authority to support your positions? One of you asked if I had conducted a 50 state survey - surely you've surveyed at least one to reach the conclusion that I lack legal acumen, am reckless, and am not familiar with how litigation works.
Just to talk about the merits - what have you lost if a firm doesn't follow through on a guaranteed offer? "Oh, Your Honor, the other firm historically has a 100% offer rate. If I had accepted their summer offer, and went there, it almost certainly would have resulted in a real offer, and then a year and a half later I would have made some money." Good luck with that. Also I expect that many jurisdictions draw a hard line at "you can't reasonably rely on future income in at-will employment."
But please, carry on with your insults.
