Nude but decent A carpenter caught hammering nails and sawing wood in the nude has been found not guilty of indecent exposure. Alameda County Superior Court Judge Julie Conger has ruled that although Percy Honniball of Oakland, Calif., was naked, he was not acting lewdly or seeking sexual gratification. Honniball, 51, was arrested last year after he was spotted building cabinets in the buff at a home where he had been hired to work. The carpenter has said he likes to work in the nude because it’s more comfortable and it helps him keep his clothes clean. Honniball earned two years’ probation in 2003 after being caught three times working naked in Berkeley, which prohibits public nudity. Oakland does not have a similar ban. � Associated Press Jackson & Campbell lawyer Robert Rider Jr. concedes that he tapped another firm lawyer on the backside at a party, according to court papers. But in a civil suit against Rider, 44, Elisa Eisenberg describes the incident as career-ending assault and battery. Eisenberg, 42, a former nonequity partner at the 50-lawyer firm based in Washington, is suing Rider (also a nonequity partner), Jackson & Campbell, firm President Richard Bryan and former President James Schaller. In her complaint, filed in June in D.C. Superior Court, Eisenberg says an intoxicated Rider forcefully groped her at a party for a client in June 2006. Eisenberg, who declined to comment, further alleges that Jackson & Campbell created a hostile work environment by refusing to fire Rider, ultimately forcing her to resign the following January. The firm seeks to dismiss the case. � Legal Times
