n Springfield, Mass., in April, Thomas P.
Budnick became the most recent man who was convicted at a trial
in which he had persuaded the judge to let him act as his own
lawyer, to then argue with a straight face on appeal that his
conviction should be overturned because his trial lawyer was
incompetent. (The decision is pending.)

Congrats. ;) I'm going to on the 1st or 2nd of each month announce who made the most first comments in the past month. People are so excited for it, I figure I'd give them some noteriety too, ya know? ;)

And I agree. It'd be a lot of luck.

Hey, self-deprecation can help people get laid. I don't see why people haven't used it to get off in another sense before.

You think it can help people get laid? I guess it depends what part of themselves they are deprecating...

Oh man. That's quite impressive. I can't really think of much more to say.

Why was he on trial?

There, that'll do.

I don't know, it wasn't in my mail box, unfortunately, but I'm sure we could create something exciting for him to have done.

Very cool. *nod* Most lawyers wouldn't do that.. they'd be out the money.. and it might get them disbarred, wouldn't it?

The words "most recent" are the most disturbing things in that. If it was only one guy, it'd just be funny...
