K Street Quiet on Reforms — For Now It might seem like a no-brainer that lobbyists would lobby on pending lobbying reform. After all, this one is personal and they get paid to spin lawmakers every day. But in the wake of the Abramoff scandal, most of K Street is staying mum, at least publicly, on the proposed legislation. • Mad Money: More Firms to Raise Associate Salaries Being a law firm manager in D.C. these days must feel something like a homeowner watching everyone in his neighborhood install a high-tech security system while you only have a bulldog.

Just look at last week’s additions… • Capitol Hill Paper Files Trademark Infringement Suit Capitol Hill newspaper Roll Call filed a trademark infringement suit this month in D.C.’s federal court against Roll Call Strategies, a lobby shop based in Frankfort, Ky. • Parting Shots: Howrey Partner Leaves for Gibson Last week, Karen Manos left Howrey for Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher, taking with her the last few million in the firm’s government contracts business from clients. • Space Race: O’Connor Moves to New Digs Within Supreme Court The vote on the Supreme Court nomination of Samuel Alito Jr. is not expected until the end of the week, but retiring Justice Sandra Day O’Connor has already moved to new quarters within the Court. • On Hold: Sentencing of Teachers’ Union Official Postponed The sentencing of a former Washington Teachers’ Union official convicted of embezzling millions in union funds was postponed to give the government an opportunity to evaluate the defendant’s mental health. • Marshall Law: Disbarred Lawyer Finally Caught for Still Practicing Being disbarred didn’t deter Matthew Marshall Jr. from practicing law in the District. Instead, he continued working as a rogue personal injury lawyer, taking on client after client for more than four years until finally he was caught and prosecuted by the D.C. Office of Bar Counsel. • Paperless Woes: Lobbyists Lobbying Themselves? Signing up clients is usually something to brag about. However, last week many lobbyists were surprised to hear they had registered to lobby on behalf of themselves.
