Welcome to Law.com’s Midweek Recess, in which we round up some tasty tidbits from the week’s legal news cycle. We’ll be here every Wednesday, so grab a cup of coffee and take a little break. It’s all downhill to the weekend from here.

A Real Killer - News flash: We’ve found the lawyer who wins the prize for most badass office decor. Matthew Ericksen, a litigator at the Atlanta firm Gray, Rust, St. Amand, Moffett & Brieske, has on his desk the taxidermied head of an alligator that he hunted and killed himself. Originally from Colorado, Ericksen came across the application for an alligator-hunting license when getting a fishing permit, and says he thought it was “the wildest, coolest thing I’d ever seen.” After applying for several years, he was granted one of a limited number of tags permitting him to kill an alligator. He teamed up with a friend from college, an engineer who was also a novice gator hunter. The two undertook the endeavor without the help of a guide (see above, re: badass). After several unsuccessful trips, they nabbed a 7-foot, 2-incher in Lake Seminole last fall.
