Sterling Dissolves

The ultra-prestigious firm of Sterling, Huddle, Oppenhiem, & Craft has officially dissolved.  On May 14th ABC decided to cut the cord on the lack luster legal dramedy The Deep End.

Firm cans all of its first year associates?

The show finally got it’s first taste of realism.

    Hey Bl1y, I first saw you commenting over on bitterlawyer and followed you here once the Wimp articles began. I’ve read through most of your archives, focusing on Reasons Not to Go to Law School, and have found your views to be both illuminating and hilarious. You have an excellent writing style and amusing content, although I’m sorry for the misfortune which spawned it.

    I’ll be around, keep up the good work and good luck in your job hunt.

    Thanks for reading. Although it doesn’t pay, it’s nice to be doing something where people actually enjoy what I produce instead of seeing it as at best a necessary evil, and at worst a chore.

    But there is a sexist element to him. He needs to better understand women and why we are not just there to please men.

  4. Chris Says:

    Marie, I agree that comments and occasionally entire posts are made which look that way. However, being a relatively new arrival to the legal blog scene I have noticed that a central tenet of online lawyer humor among the trendy crowd involves the glorification of dating tips and the one night stand. Furthermore, and this is pure speculation on my part, the special status afforded women and minorities in law firms causes resentment which is given voice in the blog posts we read.

    I think if we met bl1y in person he wouldn’t come off as sexist, merely arrogant at worst. Snide comments and emotional distance just make for good writing.

    Chris, I suspect Marie is the bizarre sort of internet troll who responds to everything as being sexist (she just dropped comments on 4 posts with the same theme). Sort of like Alma on Bitter Lawyer.

    How on earth does sexism come into this post?

    Maybe my morning coffee hasn’t kicked in yet, but I’m just not seeing it.

  7. Joy Alfred Says:

    As a fellow lawyer, I stand in solidarity against men who do not respect us for our minds.

    If Marie is to be the master of her body, she is entitled to resist overtures by men who wish to use her for sex.

    Namby: She was discussing my writing in general, not this post in particular. Though, I challenge her to find one post that’s not merely politically incorrect, but actually sexist.

    Now, odds are there is one somewhere, but I wouldn’t mind the increased hits to the site as she tries to find it.
