With many courthouses closed and many offices and homes lacking electricity and phone service because of Hurricane Wilma, what was a South Florida attorney to do? Take the family to Orlando, Fla., for a minivacation, it turns out. Some of the region’s top attorneys have been spotted cavorting in the land of Mickey Mouse. “What was I supposed to do-sit at home and be miserable?” asked Fort Lauderdale, Fla., lawyer Richard Zaden. “I figured there’s nothing I could do there, and the kids are off from school.” Some lawyers’ trips coincided with a meeting of the Academy of Florida Trial Lawyers in Orlando. Hollywood, Fla., divorce lawyer Seth Schneiderman hoped some good might come from one divorce trial that was postponed because of the storm. That couple, although separated, still live in the same house. Perhaps the hurricane brought them closer together, he said. “Who knows, maybe this will be a blessing,” he said. “God works in mysterious ways.”-Daily Business Review A Columbus, Ohio, lawyer said in a deposition for a bar association disciplinary panel that his nude stalking of women was an addictive behavior. No CLE credit Stephen Linnen, 34, pleaded guilty in 2004 to 53 misdemeanor counts of public indecency, sexual imposition and criminal trespassing and was sentenced to 18 months in jail. Dubbed the “naked photographer,” he would jump nude out of bushes in front of women and take pictures of their shocked expressions. Linnen said he has “such a revulsion towards my former behavior,” but that jail and the counseling he has received will make him a better attorney.-Associated Press
