A grand jury has dismissed a disorderly conduct charge against Harvey Kash, who was arrested after telling lawyer jokes with a friend at a Long Island courthouse last month. According to reports, Kash asked, "How do you tell when a lawyer is lying?" The two men then said in unison, "His lips are moving." Said Kash's attorney of Monday's decision, "It's still legal in America to tell jokes -- even about lawyers."
