Too Far

Although it may sometimes seem like I am anti-lawyer, I am not that way at all. In fact, I have a huge respect for the law and those lawyers who use it to ensure justice and equality.  What I do not like are lawyers who use the law as a weapon to commit crime. If I am anti anything, I am anti-crime and anti-corruption. 

When I head the story of a lawyer who was denied entry to see the Rockettes at Radio City Music Hall in New York City, which she was attending with her daughter, because she worked at a legal firm which was in litigation with the Rockettes owner MSG, I thought it was ridiculous. Note that the banned lawyer did not even work on the case. It was guild by association. This seems is a clear case of a corporation using its leverage to punish the employees at a law firm in order to influence the case outside of the law.  

We can do better.
