The purpose of this blog . . .

With law school finished, the bar passed, and no job in sight due to the worst economy in decades, I've decided to start a blog of stories and comments (mainly legal humor but also non legal).  The first story comes from watching Law and Order: SVU.  I know that the legal maneuvering isn't based in reality, but come on give me a break.  A girl was charged with the murder of her friend.  She decides to take the stand.  One problem, she is wearing the dead girl's ring, a ring the police new the victim wore but never recovered.  That is a really stupid defense attorney that let that happen and I would guarantee that the case (if it had been real) would have been reversed.
