Getting Off the Wait List - Thirty-Odd Years Later

Posted by Jeff Lipshaw

6a00d8341cce2453ef0134891705ae970c-800wi-1With apologies to the Car Talk guys (particularly Ray who starts each show this way), this is from the "I wish I had thought of that first" department here at The Legal Whiteboard.  

Mark Herrmann (left)*, chief litigation counsel at Aon, a former Jones Day partner (he did products liability litigation for us when I was at AlliedSignal going nigh on twenty years ago), author of The Curmudgeon's Guide to Practicing Law, and now "," has posted an open letter to the University of Chicago Law School requesting that it finally remove him from the wait list for the entering class of 1979.

I could send that same letter to Yale.

(HT:  Anna Ivey, The Ivey Files)

* Apropos of almost nothing except the parenthetical reference to the location of Mark's picture, the Boston Globe this morning ran a story on Planned Parenthood's endorsement of Elizabeth Warren over Scott Brown in the Senate race here in Massachusetts.  I don't know if the editor meant to be making a statement with the following caption (which also appears on the web site, where if it were a directional reference it should have been "above"):  "'We’re excited to be endorsing Elizabeth Warren (left),’ said Dianne Luby of the Planned Parenthood Advocacy Fund."
