Episode #38

Tom and I talk about News Corp. and the arrest of Rebekah Brooks (and the lawyer who charges $4,700 per hour).  We talk about the Carson case and Judge Selna reassuring us that private means private.  We talk about Esquinazi and his appeal, including the effect of the dueling declarations.  Finally, we talk about Walmart, the expansion of the investigation, and how it’s bringing in more commentary than we’ve seen in the past.

  1. I don’t think there should be any limits on what you charge for services. We all work hard to improve our talents and provide great value to our current and potential clients. If I were accused of wrongdoing, I would pay any price- all that I’ve got- for the best representation possible.
