    Of COURSE Lawyers would consider it Sacrosanct... a Sacred Secret, only to be known to the High Priests. Lawyers worship... themselves. Try to challenge them in a discussion on any kind of ethical question: They will, without exception, recognize a power higher than Justice, higher than Truth. And that power is their reputation before their peers.

    Crooked lawyers are never dealt with by the legal community until the community is shamed into doing it by the public.

    I'm a firm believer or stripping Doctors and Lawyers from being allowed to 'self-regulate' their ranks.

    Truth and Justice aren't really their main concerns.

    Yeah^^both posts. For me its a misuse of the concept that information passed between client and atty should be private.
    But in my head that is centered more around lawyers being forced to testify for example...against his own client.
    In any event perhaps this recent issue will be instructive for lawyers.
    But 26 years in jail for an innocent character.
    Too much like Edmond Dantes for me.

    The Pope visit. I may not be Catholic but his visit seems to heve been positive so far. In other words good for him and good for the folks that
    look to him.

    Last point. I understand that. Its almost as if they have set themselves "above the law"...

    From the ABA's own page on the subject:

    The attorney–client privilege is not, however, absolute. It has historically been balanced with competing objectives. Striking the right balance, recognizing the importance of the privilege, continues to be a challenge.

    What a load of shit.^^ First off the writer makes the logic error of attempting to make a sad tale...an unusual tale exchangeable with economic conditions....or real facts.
    I feel badly for the woman and her story but what does it have to do with the price of turnips?
    Actually nothing.
    But Im sure dopes will assume the sad tale is = to what is or has happened.

    But nice try.

    I'm with you Steve, but I can't decide if he should go feet first or head first.

    On the Trucker thing. Working as an Independant Contractor has some significant benefits to the drivers. For example, the truck? That's an assest. She can SELL the truck, not just let it get repo'd.

    As for there being no jobs. For truck drivers. Please. PLEASE!!! No local company I know can hire enough drivers, even with the companies in a snit about the "unstoppable" depression that some business writers want to happen. You just hire on as an employee instead of as an IC.

    SCHOOL BUS DRIVERS make $11/hr locally. Other bus companies start at $13/hr plus benefits. My company starts bus drivers at $16/hr plus benefits, and I cannot get enough drivers! Granted, they have to know how to wash, shave and dress themselves... my drivers are more like Limo Driverrs than Ralph Cramden, but the money out there, folks. Jeez. "No jobs in trucking!"

    Being an Independant is really tough now due to Diesel prices, but until the Democrats (and some republicans like the Bush's) stop blocking drilling off the coast, they can just shut up.
