Full exchange:…
In 2010, a Manhattan defence attorney requested time off, mid-trial, should his as-yet-unborn grandchild be a boy. He could then attend his grandson's bris.

Full exchange:…

Full exchange:…
The most unfortunate typo ever committed to paper can be found in this lawyer's letter--specifically the 4th sentence of the 2nd paragraph.

Full letter:…
