A lesson for today's law students
« on: November 20, 2004, 03:16:33 PM »
Here's a story from the Tennessean which contains a lesson for us.  Would you like to guess where David Gold went to law school?


Lawyer going to jail for telling witness to lie

By SHEILA BURKE
Staff Writer

He apologizes for plot to help client accused in robbery

It was a lie that was used to try to help his client avoid a robbery conviction, but it's going to cost Nashville attorney David Gold 90 days in jail and possibly his law license.

Yesterday Gold pleaded guilty before Davidson County Criminal Court Judge Seth Norman to a felony charge of accessory after the fact of especially aggravated robbery.

Gold, 35, broke down yesterday in court when he apologized to the court and to the bar for his behavior.

The lawyer was caught coaching a woman to lie to authorities to protect a client of his accused in a robbery that involved a vicious dog attack. The lie was meant to cover the tracks of his client, Jeffrey Hammons.

Nope.  You don't have to go to a tier one school to be corrupt.

Read the article. Maybe he had someone as qualified to teach Ethics as Hogan is to teach Legal Writing......Have you seen her CV. Mighty impressive, but then, no people skills are evident.
If so, he's got a suit against NSL.

Well, if you write about one NSL graduate, why not write about the other one?

I think Joy thinks Hogan is a student. Not, she is a teacher.
