Quinn Emanuel Associate Has Reservations About 'Redskin' Victory
It basically goes like this:
In a companywide e-mail to his staff, attorney Robert Raskopf crowed about getting the Washington Redskins trademark case thrown out of court on a technicality.
A young associate wondered if maybe the lawyers should fight the mascot and sent his reply to the entire firm.
A New York partner of Raskopf responded:
Now everyone's wondering if the firm will fire the youngster.
My response: This young associate is applying morality to his work. He'll never become a successful lawyer that way.
Next, Quinn Emanuel will tell us about the great job the pro-slavery lawyers did in winning the Dred Scott case.
Update: Yes, the associate was let go. Because he failed the California bar exam a second time, supposedly.
