#2 One afternoon a lawyer was riding in his limousine when he saw two men along the road-side eating grass.
Disturbed, he ordered his driver to stop and got out to investigate.
He asked one man, "Why are you eating grass?"
"We don't have any money for food," the poor man replied. "We have to eat grass."
"Well, then, you can come with me to my house and I'll feed you," the lawyer said.
"But sir, I have a wife and two children with me. They are over there, under that tree."
"Bring them along," the lawyer replied.
Turning to the other poor man he stated, "You may come with us, also."
The second man, in a pitiful voice, then said, "But sir, I also have a wife and SIX children with me!"
"Bring them all as well," the lawyer answered.
They all entered the car, which was no easy task, even f or a car as large as the limousine was.
Once under way, one of the poor fellows turned to the lawyer and said, "Sir, you are too kind."
"Thank you for taking all of us with you .
The lawyer replied, "Glad to do it.
You'll really love my place.
The grass is almost a foot high."
Come on now...you really didn't think there was such a thing as a heart-warming lawyer story...did you????

#4 Why would anyone pretend to be a doctor. Hvaen't they watched tv? Everytime someone pretends to be a doctor they end up next to a medical emergency and unable to do anything but look foolish. Much better to pretend to be a marine biologist.

"While in his office for an evening meeting, Bahinipaty told his client he had to perform a medical examination of her breasts, reiterating that he is a doctor. He fondled the woman and took pictures."

#6 Every case she ever worked on can now be re-opened if the other side wishes to do so.
She won't be practicing law again any time soon, though she'll be defending herself from a lot of lawsuits.

#7 Steve: I'm afraid that isn't how it works. If holding herself out as a doctor resulted in material harm to a client, she may get sued for malpractice. But that's pretty much it.
She is suspended until Feb 2014, which means, she is free to practice again in Feb 2014. Although she strikes me as the type who will have her own reality show by then.
The story I linked was meant to illustrate: it takes a lot more than a bit of ill-advised egotistical puffery to get disbarred altogether. I mean, A LOT. Words like "conviction," "defecation," "assault," and "lewd" typically appear somewhere in the board's findings of fact. Discipline in the legal profession is a joke compared to discipline in the medical profession.

#8 Defecation? Oh dear.

#9 Yes. In one fairly recent local case, the respondent pooped himself. In the course of his 7th DUI, whilst smashing up his Porsche, a tour bus, and a squad car. His defense was that the gigantic heap of empty airplane-size booze bottles in the backseat, and the full one in his hand, belonged to a passenger who was absent at the time of arrest. Took two years from the date of arrest for disciplinary proceedings to result in disbarment.
Seriously. You have to really TRY.
