Lerach doing harder time; plus beautiful lawyers

September 17, 2008, 4:44 PM UTC

For people looking for distractions from the fact that their 401k’s have recently vanished, here are a couple odds and ends.

Dan Levine at Cal Law’s Legal Pad (no affiliation to this site and, mea culpa, they were apparently using the Legal Pad name first) has this update on class-action impresario Bill Lerach’s rocky adjustment to life in the federal prison system. Lerach’s been transferred to a medium-security institution in Phoenix, Levine reports, after an incident at the minimum-security camp in Lompoc, Calif., in which he allegedly offered a guard the use of his San Diego Chargers tickets.

For a very unrelated curiosity, try this Web site called beautifullawyers.com, where you can buy a calendar displaying 12, physically attractive Massachusetts lawyers. (Should that be the 12?) They include both men and women, and the clothing is revealing only in a socioeconomic sense. Proceeds allegedly go to charity.

The “Beautiful Lawyers” logo includes, as the “i” in word ‘beautiful,’ a statuette of a statuesque woman holding something; I’m not sure, but it seems to be a hand-mirror, of the “Whose the fairest of them all?” variety. I’ve been badly scooped on this story, I should admit; Karen Donovan at Portfolio.com did this item on it three months ago.
