You may want to call your attorney all sorts of names. But whatever you do, don’t call him a pit bull. That kind of characterization would “demean all lawyers and thereby harm both the legal profession and the public’s trust and confidence in our system of justice.” Thus writes the Florida Supreme Court.
Now had Harriet Miers been confirmed as a Justice, surely she would have intervened and set those Floridians straight. She is, after all, a “pit bull in size six shoes” herself. So said her hero and boss, George W. Bush.
Who, come to think of it, owes his job to the Florida Supreme Court.
Which just said that you can’t refer to lawyers as pit bulls.
