Lex-Pollution Chicken Coop Is Now Open For Business



The good folks at Lex-Pollution have re-opened the infamous "chicken coop" over here on east 40th st. The new $32 an hour shitrate applies, and hours are capped at 40. Yesterday, the geeky Dechert associate came and took the internet off all the computers. Nice, huh? This pathetic dork is probably terrified of getting axed himself. Restroom is filthy and inadequete, break room has a major mildew problem, and a nasty flu is going around already. Might as well just give up coding for good at these embarrassing rates and abysmal working conditions.

Did you know that the best micheal Jackson impersonators are Nigerian?

If Joe Jackson had been Nigerian it would have been the Jackson 20, as all nigerian are gifted lovers from an early age and make manys children to help support the tribe. The Jackson twenty would have had much success and at the same time held down doc review positions in America, all the while running side businesses from the coding floor

if 4,000 documents are coded by 7 doc reviewers and three of these doc reviewers were Nigerian, how many documents were coded by attorneys?

All,

A lot of people have been contacting me via PM's and Tweets as to whether I'll be working this July 4th holiday. Fortunately, I will. In addition, as a Priv Team member, I will be paid at a double-time rate for tomorrow ($80/hour).

I have broken it down for you as follows:

Regular 40x$40=$1,600
OT 24x$60=$1,440
Double 12x$80=$960


Total 76 and $4,000


Also my colleagues and I have great weekend planned:

Tomorrow night:
Per Se with 2nd Year, Fifth Year and his Fourth Year (not-from-same-law-firm) wife. Also a Sixth Year friend of theirs and maybe a couple Staffs from my current project will be showing up later.

Sat. Night: Fireworks from High Bar

As Justice Alito’s concurring opinion in Ricci documented in amusing detail, Frank Ricci and colleagues were the victims of blatant racial discrimination by a black power broker and his allied white mayor in New Haven.
Stanford Law Professor Richard Thompson Ford says, that, well, equal protection of the laws isn’t the point of civil rights legislation. Sure, the laws include a lot of colorblind rhetoric, but the whole point is to benefit blacks at the expense of whites, so it’s a dirty trick for the Supreme Court to read the laws and the Constitution literally and apply them evenhandedly. He writes in Slate:
“The plaintiffs in Ricci were undoubtedly sympathetic: hardworking public servants—17 of them white, one Hispanic—who expected that the exam they studied for and did well on would determine their eligibility for moving up the ranks. But their legal argument is the latest in a long-standing campaign to turn civil rights laws against themselves. There’s a striking progression in the attacks on civil rights. In the early 1970s, affirmative action was widely considered to be a logical extension of civil rights principles: Even President Nixon—a man not known for his enlightened racial attitudes—supported it. But by the end of the decade, affirmative action was under attack as reverse discrimination. And now we see the next step in the march against civil rights with the part of federal civil rights law—Title VII—called “disparate impact” that prohibits employers from using promotional or hiring procedures that screen out minorities unless they can prove that the procedure is closely job-related.

Believe me,under Obama the ONLY people getting work and free health care are Nigerians, blacks, and illegal Mexicans (other minorities don't count).

The ONLY people who will be prosecuted for anything are whites, e.g., Madoff, Sanford, and they will be painted as the evil rich white master class.

Al Sharptonism will become national policy. No black can be prosecuted because like O.J., the police and prosecutors used the N word.

They're inherently racist.

Being white in America, you might as well move to somewhere else. Because you have brains you can brain drain the U.S. and be successful anywheres.

So the agencies run the show and the firms do whatever they say? That's weird. I thought the firm was the client, not vice versa. Besides, how would a coding "attorney" even know the inner workings of the agency firm relationship?

Sounds like you are postulating nonesense as trying to pass it off as a truth. Unless you are in a position to know first hand which is not possible, because you clearly are not employed (employable)by a firm nor agency.

Aspiring Lawyer Finds His Debts Bigger Hurdle Than Bar Exam (NY Times)

http://www.nytimes.com/2009/07/02/business/02lawyer.html?_r=1&scp=1&sq=bowman&st=cse

All his life, Robert Bowman wanted to be a lawyer. He overcame a troubled childhood, a tragic accident that nearly cost him a leg and a debilitating Jet Ski collision.

He put himself through community college, worked and borrowed heavily to help pay for college, graduate school and even law school. He took the New York bar examination not once, not twice, not three times, but four, passing it last year. Finally, he seemed to be on his way.

In January, the committee of New York lawyers that reviews applications for admission to the bar interviewed Mr. Bowman, studied his history and the debt he had amassed, and called his persistence remarkable. It recommended his approval.

But a group of five state appellate judges decided this spring that his student loans were too big and his efforts to repay them too meager for him to be a lawyer.

“Applicant has not made any substantial payments on the loans,” the judges wrote in a terse decision and an unusual rejection of the committee’s recommendation. “Applicant has not presently established the character and general fitness requisite for an attorney and counselor-at-law.”

Mr. Bowman, 47, appears to have crossed some unspoken line with his $400,000 in student debt and penalties, accumulated over many years.

New York’s courts have overlooked misconduct like lawyers’ solicitation of minors for sex, efforts to deceive judges and possession of cocaine. Those instances have led merely to temporary suspensions from practice.

“It usually takes a pretty significant record of some underlying misconduct to keep you out permanently,” said Deborah L. Rhode, a law professor at Stanford who has studied bar admissions across the states. Excluding someone for having too much debt was odd, she said; the hard questions about loans usually involve applicants who have used bankruptcy to try to escape loans, she said, and Mr. Bowman has not.

I worked a project in Richmond (MW) and I actually thought it wasn't so bad. The fact that you don't get time and a half sucks, but most of the folks had been working steady there long term. Add to that the fact that you can get all day parking for five or six bucks. They had a host of projects going on and I felt like they treated everyone like adults. I received a call to come back but unfortunately had a death in the family at the time. I wouldn't mind jumping on another project there.

It was when every person I talked to could only mention one major company in Richmond, and they all mentioned the same one, that I knew that I had to go somewhere else....

Last July, I received a call from a public relations executive at Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft, one of the oldest law firms on Wall Street. The next morning, she said, the firm planned to cut 96 lawyers in real estate and structured finance, bringing its 2008 layoff total to 131. The move would make Cadwalader the first law firm since the recession began to order a huge reduction in staff, about 20 percent of the firm’s bench.

I was told that the firm’s management wanted news of the cuts to be reported in a “responsible way” — ­ meaning, presumably, a narrative that employed its jargon.

The law firm was calling me because I was then the writer of The Wall Street Journal Law Blog, which at the time, many told me, was considered the industry’s go-to source for legal news.

Later that night, when I met with Cadwalader’s management in a conference room high up in the law firm’s headquarters at World Financial Center, no words were minced: Real estate finance and securitization had grown “very rapidly” over the past three years, the firm’s chairman, Christopher White, said. He pointed out that Cadwalader’s structured finance department was involved in every major leveraged buyout in 2007, including Blackstone’s $23 billion acquisition of Sam Zell’s Equity Office Properties, the largest real estate deal ever.

But by mid-2008, he continued, the market for commercial mortgage-backed securities — ­ the gas that fueled all those megadeals — ­ had nearly evaporated, falling almost 80 percent from its peak in 2007.

Anonymous said...

In other words, Cadwalader had made a lot of money facilitating the financial product that drove the boom. But now the market for that product was gone. And Cadwalader planned to contract along with it. (In the last 12 months, according to Commercial Mortgage Alert, there has been zero issuance in the so-called C.M.B.S. market.)

In a law firm world that for nearly two decades had been loath to risk the appearance of weakness by laying off lawyers, Cadwalader’s move set off a sea change in law firm management. Here was one of Wall Street’s most prestigious firms actually behaving like a business, reacting to the onset of recession with sensible layoffs rather than perpetuating the appearance of health at all costs ­ — costs that otherwise would be passed on to clients.

The message was heard clearly. Over the next 10 months, White & Case would lay off 279 attorneys, according to LawShucks.com, a Web site that tracks law firm layoffs. Clifford Chance would bring its total layoffs to 225, according to LawShucks, while the toll at Latham & Watkins would eventually reach 190. As of June 14, nearly 5,000 lawyers had been cut by major law firms since January 2008, or about 300 a month, ­ the approximate size of many law school graduating classes.

The legal media, in its rush to side with the fallen, has often cast the layoff wave as the result of endemic firm mismanagement finally coming home to roost. Perhaps. But make no mistake: These layoffs, ­ which in many cases have been paired with salary freezes or cuts and significant reductions in law school recruiting, ­ are the best thing to happen to the legal industry in years. Call it a blessing amid recession.

Start with the benefit to cost-conscious corporate counsel, who for too long have been bilked by a law firm compensation model that leads lawyers to prioritize their “hourly quotas,” which determine year-end bonuses, over quality service. Unfortunately, the same bar presidents and law firm managing partners who are in a position to do away with the billable-hour format are happy to write op-eds decrying the miserable tradition, yet are unwilling to lead the pack when it comes to taking action.

So the billable hour remains entrenched, a vestige of law firm insularity and lawyer self-regulation. In the downturn, however, the common practice of “staffing up” a matter to increase billings has finally found its proper comeuppance. The economy for Wall Street legal services is no longer willing or able to support unnecessarily huge armies of six-figure paperweights.

And what about all those 20- and 30-something associates who can no longer formulate excuses — ­ But I’m paying off my law school debt while I figure out what I want to do! — ­ to remain in the kinds of jobs that so many of my law firm friends describe as “soul-crushing”? For many lawyers at law firms, particularly those who spent the early part of their careers toiling in structured finance departments and contributing, in the end, nothing to nothing, this recession may be the thing that delivers them from more 3,000-hour years of such drudgery as changing the dates on securitization documents and shuffling them from one side of the desk to the other.

Like a relationship gone bad, clearly hopeless to everyone but the imprisoned, it often takes a forced exit to break the leash of inertia that collars so many smart law graduates to mind-numbing work. So don’t pity these people. What they needed all along was liberation. Now they have it.

I think it's silly in a recession to try and continue to gut the legal profession. The billable hour is not going away, my friend. The problem is that there is nothing to replace it.

Flat rate in biglaw? Don't be ridiculous! Before the billable is destroyed you will have to develop a new method of payment. No credible outfits are using a flat rate model, at this point.

Perhaps slop shops like Discovery ready are doing things akin to this. But does anyone realistically think that big firms are going to this.

Now, many firms are having big layoffs. So what? Every industry across the board is shedding workers. Have you seen the recent unemployment numbers?

Are you suggesting now that every company across the globe that is experiencing recessionary times should change their business model? Of course not, and to do so would be throwing out the baby with bath water.

The idea of changing biglaw because of the Wall Street collapse is absurd. I hope you can develop some more sophisticaged theories and better topics to write about.

I will agree with one point, however. It is good to for biglaw to be undergoing layoffs. There was a massive overexpansion during the phoney real estate boom. These people should be let go.

But to say law firms should be run like another business, e.g. a mortage company, is stupid.

I have absolutely NO problem with minorities at the higher levels, actual lawyers, doctors, engineers. I admire them and respect their intellect and hard-work.

But on the lower level, the ones that cause the most problems and have the most issues are black women and Hispanic men and women. Black men are fine!! They are real men and don't have much time for stupid shit. Black women have the most problems with other minority women while Hispanics [Puerto Ricans and Dominicans] are like little chihuahuas, always looking for a fight, and have problems with everyone. I don't know why they are so rabid - maybe it's all the toxic diets they consume. Mexcicans, other Central Americans are not so problematic.

I have lived in New Orleans and Washington, DC, and always feel very comfortable among black people. They welcome me, I welcome them. I like R&B music and some rap, and sports, so we have a lot to talk about. It's exceedingly rare that I am mistreated by a black person. It happens once in a very blue moon. 90% of the time I completely hit it off with African-Americans.

I can see life from their point of view, and I think African-Americans can feel me on that. Let's face it, this country has a history of institutionalized racism, bigotry and slavery. Privileged whites have mistreated, enslaved, disenfranchised, and marginalized black people for centuries in this country -- and have done so with a particular relish, as in slobbering spittle and drooling when they see black people suffer because it makes many whites (particularly privileged white MALES) feel better about themselves -- assuaging their naturally pitifully low self-esteems. They can't cope with life, and so they naturally tend to lord it over anyone they can feel "superior" to.

This is why you don't get along with black people. They can see right through you, fool. Your words and your body language reek of negative vibrations and hate.

You are a poor excuse for a human being. Die and rot in hell, fool!!!

More hate from the LPO hucksters. Really, it's Sunday morning in Mumbai and 10 pm here in NYC.

Do you think anyone in the USA would be posting this garbage at 10pm on 4th of July?

Of course not. Babu, step away from the computer and keep your hateful words to yourself.

Sure!

This person knows zero.

If these are "New York City area suburban upper-middle class white kids" they are definitely not Republicans. They are Democrat liberals.

Duh, they are white they are probably Irish,Jewish, Italian. What else?

Your forgetting every other group - Asians, Arabs, south Asians, Russians, East Europeans - who hate the blacks, Nigerians, and illegal Mexicans and their bullshit.

I don't think they're "jealous" of Obama and his so called success.

They just see the loser shit of America now have the voting power to elect such a Turkey.

Obama's just an affirmative action and entitlement beneficiary.

That's why the media never can say anything about how wonderful he is. Otherwise they are racist.

Go to hell blacks, illegals, and Obama white trash (only white trash voted for Obama).

So unreasonable.

I live in an area where there is a sudden influx of overseas Indians who are here on HB1 visas to do computer work. How they can't find qualified Americans to do this work baffles me.

Anyways, the presence of these overseas Indians is really bringing down the quality of the community. Studio apartments become clown cars, the cooking is obnoxiously pungent, and they leave trash all over the place. The people that are profiting off of this cheap labor don't have to worry because they are oblivious to it up in their gated communities in Greenwich.

They are here, because they are cheap. Reread the last sentence. There are tones of unemployed BS, BSCS, BSCE, MS, MSE, and PhD U.S.A Computer people out there. Talk to an immigration lawyer about HB1 Visa requisitions. These Lawyers take sick pride in that they can make a requisition so specific no U.S. person could fill it. One joked to me once, that he could write a requisition so specific that he could have to import someone to sweep his floor. The system is a joke.

I talked to an Indians when I was in I.T.. they said they know they are here as cheap bodies. But, they have a money is money philosophy. The irony is that most of them are Biology, Chemistry, Geology, or language majors. They actually have to train them in Computer Science over there to ship them here. They have less than a VOTECH education in Computers.

It's just a race to the gutter. Indians will work for lower wages. Americans invented the computer, the software, etc etc. We have plenty of Americans to do the work, but greedy corporations want to lower wages and gut the middle class. Judging from the current state of the economy, they're doing a good job.

Anonymous said...

Indians are better and do a better job. Period.

You can't compare them to blacks, Nigerians, and illegal Mexicans.

Indians, in India and other countries, are very highly educated, hard working, and family oriented.

It's a free market. They're only displacing people who are stupid idiot trash.

I'll live in any Indian area anywheres instead of near the crime blacks and ghetto blaster Hispanics with their trash music all over the neighborhood.

Used to be there were nice ethnic COMMUNITIES in New York. Now just ghetto welfare suckers. Hence cities losing their tax base and going down the drain.

The white liberals are living in Scarsdale and doing everything to avoid any contact with blacks.

This country is being flushed down the toilet. Anything public and not protected behind gated walls is being destroyed and pissed upon by the more undesirable elements of society. I had a horrible 4th in that I made a foolish decision to save some money and enjoy the holiday at one of our more popular public beaches. After witnessing widespread profanity, trash blasting their hip hop music out of boom boxes, beer bottles and chicken wings being tossed around, welfare mothers cursing and smacking their children across the face, I made a pact never to venture out of my house for such an outing ever again.

I am Indian, no joke, and I agree with you. I was not brought up like this and I cannot bear to live with these people. Sometimes I just want to smack them across their faces.

But many Indians are also super nice and refined and educated and hard-working. And many have gone to the best schools in the world and are great lawyers and doctors and engineers.

I guess it happens in everyone race - the rich and the poor, the dumb and the educated. So it's probably more about money and education and less about race.

Poor dumb ugly people all over the world are SUPER ANNOYING - and I just don't know why I have to vomit everytime I stept out of the house and why people cannot be good-looking, smart, kind, compassionate, hard-working and intelligent like me. Today I really wanted to kill myself when I just stepped out to get some fresh air and all my refined senses were assaulted by ugly, loud, poor uneducated people. Uuuuugh, I am not sure I can live much longer in such a hideous world...

2:03 while I feel your plight and feel sorry for you I am also happy to hear that someone else had a miserable Fourth of July as I did. I live in a neighborhood in which five blocks are super-wealthy and the rest is THE TOILET GHETTO. Odd, I know. I live in the super-wealthy area only because I got lucky. I live there because of the proximity of a most beautiful incredible park which runs along a river. On weekdays it is heaven and I truly don't mind being unemployed as running there is like being in paradise. But on weekends like today IT IS MISERABLE!! I went out for some air and was assaulted by old ugly Hispanic men with pitbulls, fat waddling ladies, loud music and broken beer bottles, oh and lots of cellulite-ridden flesh. It was awful. I also came back and did not leave the house until the vermin return to their hovels or return Monday to pickingup shit or whatever it is they do for a living.

To 7;30, the white boy who was defending blacks. Yeah of course you don't have a problem with them jackass because you ARE WHITE. They are very nice to you. You should see the way they are to other minorities. Black men are never the problem. Black women on the other hand are total cunts to other minority women. - and no I don't give off any "vibrations" when I meet them. I am actually very nice and warm-hearted and the nicer I am the meaner they are. These cunts make my life hell working with them. Many do shoddy work and if you say anything they claim racism - and if the recruiter is also black you ARE FUCKED. I have no problems at all with elite black women educated at fine schools and in serious professions.

I'd much rather live in tiny studio in a nice neighborhood than a large place in a ghetto neighborhood. When your neighbors are ghetto and they don't care about life and the people around them, it makes life pretty unbearable.

So true, so true. I live in a place on the UWS. It is small but I have never had greater peace of mind. The ghetto places may be larger and near beautiful parks but all that is marred by seeing the ugly ghetto faces. Even a trip to the super market or the walk to the subway can take on scary proprtions. These people have nothing to lose while people with an education and a career can nowhere muster the energy and drama to cope this scum and bacteria that pass for mankind.

I hate minorities but I do like Prez. Obama. Look, even if you call him "affirmative action" or whatever the dude has had to be razor sharp to do what he did.

Obama is worse than any minority.

But he's an opportunist so never thanks his white side and plays the race card day and night. An entitled moron.

P.S. Harvard law review has affirmative action policy. 4 minority seats out of 30.

I think the pecking order starting from worst is Puerto Ricans and Domincans, Black women, other Hispanics, and then all the other races.

Is it just me or are Hispanic men hyper-sexualized??? Seems like that's all they can think of - well all men think like that but most men in other races are able to conduct themselves with some dignity - except the Hispanic men. Their tongues are always hanging out - like dogs in perpetual heat. The uglier they are the hornier they are. Someone needs to study Hispanic men - their diets etc - to see why they are so turned on ALL THE TIME.

They are paying $28/hour, no parking and no OT on a project in LA with set hours. It's infuriating. Many of us are interviewing for permanent positions but have mortgages/law loans to pay and are at the mercy of these staffing agencies.

I used to work as a para for an immigration firm about 5yrs ago, and they were totally unethical. The government would require that the position the H-1B candidate was in the running for be advertised in the newspaper to ensure that there were no qualified workers available for the position. The attys would tell me to include some random skill that the H-1B candidate had so that it would eliminate all the US workers (even though they really did not need this skill to do the job), or they would have me throw away the qualified resumes and lie to the govt.

The female Nigerian doc reviewers are the best. They do not cause any problems and they are very quiet. In fact, you don't even know they are in the room.

What they do is come to work and sign in. They then leave and go shopping. They then return later at night and sign out. Its so funny.

I knew a Nigerian girl who was on three projects at the same time. I wouldn't be surprised if she was double or even triple billing. Most Americans can't even find one job, yet these people are able to pull down three at the same time. I am sure if anyone called her out on any of this (bar authorities included), they would have been labled a racist.

"The female Nigerian doc reviewers are the best."

What?

On the last Update job a Nigerian woman used to wear that stupid jungle headress (yellow) which looked like a huge plant on top of her head. Meanwhile running back and forth to the other two simultaneous doc reviews.

But Update says, we are so happy with our serious Nigerian temps.

Update sucks, and the Nigerian temps should go back to Lagos and be the lawyers for the email scam operators (defending them of course) and train terrorists to bomb the U.S.

To the non-black (probably Asian/India) minority who says how good blacks treat whites.

Why have I not noticed this?

EARTH TO STUPID ASIAN:
blacks and whites HATE each other.

There are almost no real intermarriages and very few friendships.

Whites (especially liberal New York whites) will spend any amount of money to avoid living near or sending their kids to school with blacks.

Believe me, the white phonies here are from West Hartford, CT. and wouldn't go near a black. That's why they bend over backwards to say they are Obama supporters and to call other people racist. Call other people racist and you "cover yourself".
