Are you or someone you know too afraid to use Wikipedia because "anyone can edit it" and "anyone can say anything they want?"
Help them get over their technophobia with this article: Wikipedia for Dummy Lawyers.

Lindsay Lohan has been sentenced to 120 days in jail for violating her drunk driving probation. In addition to her 120 days in jail, Lohan was sentenced to 480 hours of community service, 360 of which must be spent at the Downtown Women's Center, and the remaining 120 hours at the LA County morgue.
Lohan's sentencing will be delayed while her lawyers appeal the decision, and she is expected to be released on a $75,000 bond. She could use the opportunity to negotiate a more favorable settlement with prosecutors.
If you have the mad cash than Lohan does, can't you just have a full time driver take you around everywhere? Maybe have your law firm put its junior associates on rotation. They'll probably find the gig fun, and you'll always have a lawyer handy in case there's trouble. Or, if $300/hr is too much to pay your driver, find some up-and-coming comedian you can hire for like $100 a day and who will provide endless entertainment. Or, just skip the club scene and throw house parties so you don't even have to worry about drunk in public charges.
Lohan is also set to stand trial for walking out of a jewelry store with a necklace on that she didn't pay for. Lohan had maintained that she forgot she had tried it on and taking it was an accident, the store owner argued that Lohan used her friend to distract the clerk while she stole the necklace. Surveillance video from the store showed a clerk walking her out and opening the door for her. The judge viewed the video and agreed with the store owner's take on the incident, but reduced the charge from a felony to a misdemeanor.
The reduction was due to how the jewelry was valued. The threshold for felony theft is $950 and the necklace had a price of $2,500, but the judge decided to refer to what it cost the store, only $850.

Our ignoble editor will be hosting a happy hour on Friday, June 17th in NYC. And by happy hour, we mean happy 2 - 4 hours. The location is still TBD; we have a few places in mind but are waiting to see just how many mouths we have to feed before finalizing the choice.
We make no guarantees, but our writers Dr. Rob Dobrenski and Shadowhand will try to make an appearance, as will Ben Corman of AttentionCrash.net, who cohosts Attention Crash Radio with Dr. Rob.
Harvard Law School played host to a lecture by Gary Taubes titled "Why We Get Fat."
The talk said that obesity may be largely caused by an emphasis on certain carbohydrates, rather than the National Institute of Health's claim that weight gain is simply due to consuming more calories than burned. You know, just that silly claim that is backed up by junk science like the Law of Conservation of Mass and Energy.
Apparently Harvard has a Food Law Society. Who knew?
