I have a gift for you today.
A few weeks ago I published my response to a complaint filed against me with the Oregon State Bar by a Floridian with too much time on her hands and an unfortunately robust Internet connection. I was not able to publish the whole document with all the exhibits due to technical issues I won’t explain because I’m a luddite and not in the mood.
For various reasons, the entire document could not be posted.
Stunning in both its breadth and depth, this response will make you laugh, make you think, and make you cry.
You may be wondering, “Why will it make me cry?”
Because it’s really funny. I’m sorry if you read more into that than I intended.
I have received numerous requests to repost my response to the bar in all its glorious entirety once my technical issues were resolved. Resolved they are, as of yesterday, so Christmas has come early for my beloved readers!
Before you click on the PDF file, you will need to prepare yourself. This is not something one can skim through or read quickly.
How to Read Robin’s Response to the Oregon State Bar:
- Wait until you have at least an hour to yourself. It won’t take an hour to read (unless you painfully stupid or a divorce lawyer; please excuse the redundancy) but you will want to go through it a few times. Yes, it’s just that fabulous.
- Pour yourself a drink and light a fire. Drink the drink, pour another, and begin.
- If you can, do this in a group and discuss the finer points afterward. While I certainly expect to have Robin DesCamp book groups forming all over the country soon, I see no reason why my fans shouldn’t start now with this document.
- Read ORCP 8.1(a)(3) below:
It is professional misconduct for a lawyer to engage in conduct involving dishonesty, fraud, deceit or misrepresentation that reflects adversely on the lawyer’s fitness to practice law.
OK kids, are you ready? Let’s go!
Merry Christmas and the Jewish thing that’s too hard to spell.
