By the way, this story joins a fun group of true new/summer associate legends that you'll be hearing about. A first year prof passed around articles about the other two.
There's the "sushi memo" and the "busy doing jack sh-t" e-mail. So be careful about your correspondence with lawyers, lest you become a legend.
Lesser known, but amazingly juicy, is the summer associate who jumped in the Hudson River during a firm party in NYC last summer. That one's true, too.
