Bill, Baby, Bill: Lawyer Bills 29 Hours In a Day

Above the Law reports on a court-appointed attorney who billed 29 hours in a day. Now, like me, I know that most lawyers entered the profession because they are mathematically challenged. That may be the case here. And I think this is where he is probably going with the "sloppy book-keeping" argument, anyway.

Here is another thought: What about travel across time-zones? That is a great way to rack up hours in excess of 24 per day.

All of this of course tarnishes our collective legal reputations. Absurd outcomes like this act as a sort of tragicomic reference point for all that is wrong with the legal profession.
