Former U.S. District of Massachusetts federal bankruptcy Judge Robert Somma, who resigned after a drunk driving arrest, is now senior counsel at Boston-based firm Posternak Blankstein & Lund. Somma was arrested in New Hampshire in February while wearing women's evening wear, according to Associated Press reports. He tried to rescind his resignation and more than 200 bankruptcy lawyers signed on to a letter supporting him that was sent to the 1st Circuit. His resignation became effective on May 30.
