Court to Lerach: Law Teaching is *Not* Community Service

The National Law Journal reports that William Lerach, who pleaded guilty to crimes involving kickback payments to class action plaintiffs, asked a federal judge to complete part of his community service by teaching a law course at UC Irvine. 

The course would be called "Regulating Free Market Capitalism -- Are We Failing?"  U.S. District Judge Walter was not convinced that Lerach would make an effective teacher, claiming that "the only message he could offer students was this: 'Don't get caught.'"
