    Reporting from Washington -- Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor has received the stamp of approval from the American Bar Assn. less than a week before her confirmation hearing begins on Capitol Hill.

    Sotomayor, a sitting federal appeals judge in New York, was deemed "well qualified" to serve as an associate justice on the high court by an ABA panel -- the highest rating the national attorney organization bestows. The White House was notified by a letter Tuesday to counsel Gregory Craig.

    Ah yes. A group of individuals who are involved in a profession with incredibly stringent ethics rules is, of course, untrustworthy :lol::lol::lol:

    Yay for crappy stereotypes. Why did we even bother discussing Ricci, Del, I'm sure all those untrustworthy lawyers were just making shit up, right?

    nik, why don't you pull the stik out of your ass and relax?

    lawyers, oh, excuse me, *attorneys* regularly finish at or near the top of the most untrustworthy professions. typically they're only beaten out by car salesmen, real estate salesman and politicians.

    so, call me crazy, but i'm going to say that most people think lawyers are moneygrubbing, shiftless, lying cocksuckers who would steal the rings off their dead mothers' corpses.

    not that there's anything wrong with that, *counselor*.

    Oh well, because people think it, it must be true, right?

    So glad that 2,000 years ago the sun revolved around the earth, but then it all switched when Galileo came around, right?

    People think lawyers are untrustworthy because they can't comprehend the concept of an adversarial system. Its no surprise that you fall into that category, Del.

    people think lawyers are untrustworthy because a fair percentage of them have proven to be just that. funny thing about humans, huh?

    it's no surprise that you make a feeble attempt to disparage me.

    i'll try not to let it destroy my faith in wannabe shysters, nikki.

    Please define "fair percentage" and describe how they've proven to be that.

    Good luck =).
