For instance, your colleagues leak your emails. Headline and first paragraphs from AP (?!) and found in today's online New York Lawyer:
Emily Pataki, Now NY Biglaw Associate, Fails Bar Exam on First Try
ALBANY, N.Y. -- Emily Pataki, like the late John F. Kennedy Jr., has failed the New York state bar exam on her first attempt.
Pataki, the eldest daughter of Republican Gov. George Pataki and, like her father, a graduate of Columbia University Law School, informed colleagues at the White & Case law firm in New York City in an e-mail memo Tuesday that she failed the exam. A copy of her e-mail was obtained by the New York Observer weekly newspaper and reported Tuesday on its political Web site.
My 2 cents: You know what? The bar exam is hard. Brilliant people have failed it. It'll be tough, Emily, but hang in there. This will be a distant memory soon enough and you will do great things in law. Anyway, this is not news and should not be an AP or NYL story. [Alan Childress]
