Members of the Utah State Bar got an unexpected surprise when they opened a note from the organization Monday.
The state certification agency, in a note meant to advertise its annual spring convention in St. George, accidentally also attached an image of a topless woman—and the email was sent to every member attorney.
According to the organization’s website, more than 11,000 attorneys belong to the Utah State Bar.
“We are horrified,” John Baldwin, executive director of the Bar, said in an email. “We are investigating to discover how this occurred. Our goal is to find out what happened and insure it never happens again.”
That, of course, didn’t stop the image from circulating and it certainly didn’t stop Twitter from having a laugh at the Bar’s expense.
The Bar quickly sent out a note of apology to everyone on the email list immediately after realizing what it had sent.
