Entire Lawyer Firm Ordered to Take Ethics Class

Here’s a refreshing story, courtesy of Groklaw, a US Federal judge in California has ordered an 80 strong firm of lawyers to take 6 hours of ethics training for "repeated misstatements of the record, frivolous objections to plaintiff’s statement of facts, and repeated mischaracterizations of the law.". It would appear that Elaine M. Yama, the lead on the case (whom the judge singled out for 20 hours of training) is no longer with the firm, see the Google Cache for the old page about her.

I wonder if we could get the same for politicians too ?
