A Lawyer on Display in Knoxville
Tensions between PR people and lawyers are legion. There was no PR person in this situation down in Knoxville, Tenn., but there should have been. This News Sentinel account of a lawyer putting himself on display, supposedly on a client's behalf, is not for the fainthearted. "Oh, he was full of clichés," writer Pam Strickland reports, "but I won't bother with the rest of those except for his demeaning insistence on calling a female news reporter 'sweetheart.' Really. He apologized, but then he took it back 'because you really are.'" Anybody want to advise the Tennessee Bar Association?
