Good lawyers often come up with creative ways to solve their clients' problems, but the law clinic at St. John's law school really went outside the box to help 62-year-old Lucy Ali. When a contractor stopped work after she'd paid it $71,000, the clinic got involved. It probably won't get her money back -- the contractor is filing for bankruptcy -- but it did hook her up with the TV program Extreme Makeover, the program where deserving people have their houses radically remodeled. The episode is reported filming now.
