An incensed federal judge on Monday rejected disgraced plaintiffs' attorney William Lerach's request to complete some of his community service by teaching a course at the University of California, Irvine School of Law. U.S. District Judge John Walter in Los Angeles devoted several minutes during a hearing reciting public statements in which Lerach appeared to display a lack of remorse for his crime. As a result, Walter said, the only message Lerach could offer students was this: "Don't get caught."
