Lawyers give bad name to Pit Bulls
Those lawyers sure have a lot of nerve, casting aspersions on the good name of pitbulls. The dogs may take your arm off but the lawyers will do a whole lot more! Look who's calling the kettle black:
TALLAHASSEE, Florida (Reuters) - A Florida law firm's television advertisement featuring a pit bull, a dog breed known for its aggression, is misleading and an affront to the legal profession, the Florida Supreme Court ruled on Thursday.
The advertisements "demean all lawyers and thereby harm both the legal profession and the public's trust and confidence in our system of justice," Chief Justice Barbara Pariente scolded a unanimous decision.
