Another E-Discovery Shin-dig

"Hey Tom, Did you see this? Let's Gate-Crash the E-Discovery Shin-dig!‏

Listen to some of the podcasts! We have Diane Barasso, slave-mistress of Barasso, and the Panega-3 outsourcing crew! Sounds like quite a shindig."


Learn how to most efficiently downsize and outsource your legal work to India, followed by a presentation by Lady Barasso on how best to torture those Americans remaining through "non technology solutions designed to maximize efficiency, including ways to accelerate the review teams." I am curious as to what "non technology techniques" Lady Barasso has in mind to prod the teams along, especially when she oversees one of the most stifling, demoralized, low paid review camps in the NY metropolitan area. Maybe she will give a lesson in her infamous churn and burn mass firing techniques.

Barasshole isn't even a lawyer!!! Screw the bar that mandates that you pay 100 grand and pay outrageous CLE and registration fees every year so that you micromanaged and preyed upon by some loser middle manager in a souless dead end job in hourly rate free fall with no benefits and no future. If this isn't a reason to killself, I don't know what is!

Does anyone have Lady Barasso's email address? I think it's time for an junk email bombardment to clog up her inbox.

For those concerned over unemployment and COBRA benefits running out at the end of the month here is some good news:

"Lawmakers are looking to extend unemployment insurance and COBRA healthcare benefits for the unemployed through 2010 at a cost of $100 billion alone, according to the sponsor of House legislation, Rep. Jim McDermott (D-Wash.)."

They will use the remain TARP money to do so. If this is the case, conservatives may not fight is since the money is already allocated, and they can not claim it will add to the deficit. But, who knows- since when have politicians looking to gain power ever let reality get in the way.

Are benefits still due to expire at the end of the year? There are only 4 weeks left.

Anonymous said...

At the moment they are still due to end if you are not up for emergency or extended benefits before the end of the year. However, the advantage of shifting this to TARP money is that this means the hold up will not be cost. Now, the GOP may play games with this because they want the Democrats hurting going into 2010, but conservative Democrats would have to be absolutely idiots to play alone. Never underestimate how stupid the Democrats are, but here, I think the incentive is for the White House to make this happen as quickly as possible. So, my point is that if the announcement happens tomorrow with Obama proposing 200 bil of the unused TARP going to jobs issues like COBRA and unemployment, I think the chances are 95 percent this will happen.

Barry, fuck Copenhagen, the climate is going to be heating uo real bad in the US if we don't get benefits. I , for one, am ready to throw off my snuggie and come out in the streets.

There is probably a better chance of him moving if you stop calling him racist crap like Barry.

And, the blog owner wonders why the ABA did not nominate his blog.

That is good news and thank you from the bottem of my geart - but I don't understand how cracking a joke and asking him to speed things up is seen as a negative. Did you forget to take you Prozac today?

Barry is a term used by racists during the primaries to describe Obama. I am not the biggest fan of Obama (or any politician right now), but if you are going to use a term, you should at least know that it has a racist root to it.

Anonymous said...

"Barry" is not racist. Obama's own family and friends referred to him as Barry as recently as the 80's. The PC police think everything is racist around here.

Anonymous said...

No retard, he was called Barry growing up in Hawaii. It is not a "code word" as you morons suggest.

Get a life idiots and stay on message.


Which sleazy outsourcer is going to be present at this conference? Any conference that Barasshole inolved is decidedly third rate.

The elites in the legal profession and the legal academy are ultra PC. What's striking though is that I have never seen an organization whose policies are so hostile to native born African American. Whether it is NYLS loading minorities up with mountains of undischargeable debt in the name of equality, to the importation of Nigerians to fulfill affirmative actions quotas, to the staffing of the nasty staff attorney ghettos with minorities, it is truly striking.

The most racist people are those who pretend to be so progressive and liberal. Look at Mass. Ultra-liberal electorate, yet Boston remains one of the most, if not the most, racist and segregated city in the US. At least in the South, they don't hide their racism behind liberal platitudes.

Beware when people try too hard to wear Thwe Goodguy Badge. They're always compensating for what's really going on beneath their surface appearance.

The funny thing about you idiots trying to put me down is that you are pissing on the hand that provided you information that I did not have to provide to you.

6:01 - why the 'tude? Unless I misunderstood or misread the comments, it seems that somebody asked a question, a couple of others chimed in with some humor, then some dork started yapping about "Barry" being racist, when the President's own wife calls him
"Barry"... Anyway, thank you for your information!! Have a terrific evening and please don't sweat the small stuff...

Emily, me thinks you are a Vampire. You really ought to try sucking the blood of your Big Law Partners - oh wait, they are bloodless assholes - no nutrition there... But you appear to be a zombie so you don't need nutrition...

P.S. Do you even know what Darwinism is?!? I see this kind of bullshit on the racist blawgs all the time - and here it is coming from a Big Law Bitch that is supposed to have an education? The "survival of the fittest" is about successful reproduction within a popultion. You won't be reproducing much thanks to your fucked up chromosomes and herpes, so I'd lay off the Darwinism b.s. if I were you.

White Person said...

There once was a time not too long ago when the mere insinuation of 'racism' by a black person against a white person would send the white person cowering for cover, even if the white person didn't intend to be 'racist' or even contemplate it. Apparently, the knee-jerk racism accusations are still alive and well, but it's refreshing to see some fighting back.

Please, black people - stop with the knee-jerk racism accusations whenever you don't agree with what a white person says. It's unbecoming and actually sets back the cause of equality among different people. Save the racism accusations for times when the racism is clear.

Listen 5:47 Dude - I am one of the people who has been asking about benefits on this blog. Someone really nice, usually Stupid Sexy Flanders always answers, and I always thank her or the anon person who does it. I think it's so cool that despite all of us acting retarded and venting someone still takes out time to address genuine issues. When I saw your post it again felt really nice that someone was doing this - I just cracked a joke asking Barry to hurry up [cause I am broke and starving]- and mostly for a laugh to get out of this damn depression - I didn't think it would be construed as anything else - certainly not racist - I don't know what anyone said in the primaries - but using Barry was like using Bushie or Billy the Willy [for Clinton] - a term of endearment. Certainly not racist by any means -I still remain grateful that you posted some good info.

If you want to talk about zombies, just look at Barasso.

Aside from your local funeral home, Barasso has to be one of the most depressing places on earth. Every morning the most dejected people ride off into the NJ suburban hinterlands and line up like cattle to punch into that factory. You'd have to be on prozac in order to avoid having thoughts of suicide on a daily basis.

Calling someone named Barack by its diminutive Barry is racist?

The President went by Barry until he was well into his college days.

Anyone want to hire a nice old lady for some document review? I know you agencies are mostly interested in the young guns that can pull in the most hours. While I do suffer from periodic episodes of severe colitis, I am in pretty good health and well beyond the torments of Menopause. Having an old goat around can definitely boost morale for the youngins. On my last project, they used to refer to me as Aunt Sonia.

Sonia - you are one crazy goat - I feel you are related to Keith Richards, you look so much like him - having old goats around is good - because then everyone thinks I in bad shape but thank God I am not her. Why bust your hump with a bunch of young assholes when you could find some old geyser - go work on yourself [and for heavens sake get some plastic surgery ] and find someone to take care of you. Start volunteering at old folks homes - you might meet some oldie on his deathbed!! Good luck...

Don't quite understand your gripe here... Shouldn't a client be able to use the cheapest solution to complex litigation production requests? Due diligence is not really practicing law. Making a privilege decision is, but a trained monkey or high school student can search for key words. Why shouldn't the client be able to outsource to the cheapest place?

Helga said...

BECAUSE people who are not native speakers do not understand the vernacular. Hello?

Anonymous said...

For the same reason we don't let people fly on airplanes flown by monkeys because it is a cheaper option. Allowing foreigners who don't grasp the vernacular make privilege calls to withhold evidence in cases where oftentimes Americans lives are at stake is a mockery. Why don't we just throw all the documents down the stairs and hand over whatever lands face up. That would be justice.

The name "Barry" is a slick public relations manuever to make Obama seem more like jews and white folks and less like what he really is.

"Barry" is Obama's and white/jew so-called liberals' preferred moniker for the messiah which makes him seem less Muslim or threatening to themselves, lefty jews, homos, dumb white beyatches and the rest that supported him.

All of you "attorneys" are fools. You hoped to get into a "profession" that is run by the most wicked of the wicked.....Priviledged WASPS and Jews...who control the so-called legal "profession" and all of america with an iron fist.

You thought that your JD's and bar admissions would let you enter their inner sanctum....the land of gold and honey.

Well, fools...you were wrong. They deny you at every turn and laugh at you.

When their incompetent president Bush almost sent us all over a cliff they concocted a P.C. bi-racial, big eared, purple lipped messianic fraud to give you all false hope in order to pacify you.

And they, along with the purple lipped one himself, concocted "Barry" to pacify the lemmings further.

But even if his intentions were good....his WASP and JEW owners will not let him bring the true communism that you all seem to desire.

The WASPS and wicked Jews that run this country and profession are the investor class and they will be god damned if they have to pay those americans who are not them a dime to do anything that a mexican, chinese, nigerian or indian can't do for a penny.

You have all been rendered useless and marked as undesirables by those who control everything. Get that through your thick wanna be attorney, wanna be commie skulls and move on with life.

Law is for the elitist, racist, classist WASP and JEW. It is not for the likes of most of you.

Deal with it.

I am just tryin to keep it real my leperous lawland loser lemming lawyer wannabe fools.

I assume all commenters here (opposing outsourcing) have already contacted the ABA demanding it undo its disastrous outsourcing-friendly opinion (08-451). I also assume you've contacted your old law school deans asking them to put pressure on the ABA. (Law school faculty have their own reasons to be worried about outsourcing: law schools will dry up in the next few years because of fewer applicants). I assume you've also contacted your local bar assocation's president about outsourcing. Please, people: Start doing what it takes to get rid of outsourcing!

Obviously, any person here posting comments in favor of outsourcing is not an attorney (w/ years of education and training invested in the profession). Otherwise they wouldn't make stupid comments about the "value" of outsourcing (valueable only to greedy corps). All attorneys in the USA need to be very fearful of outsourcing: It is causing major stress on the legal job market, and driving everyone's wages way, way down (partners, associates, in-house counsel, paralegals, etc.). And good luck finding a "doc review" temp job if you get laid off. There's none around anymore! This whole segment of the legal market has dried up!

Anonymous said...

And who leads the league in causing out sourcing? Your WASPY and JEW massas who sneer at your very existance. The devils that I mentioned in my brilliantly truthful posting above.

They have nothing but contempt for all americans who are not they. They will not be pleased until every decent paying job that normal americans have is given to some third worlder at pennies on the dollar.

Your massas are racist, classist, elitist and very evil people who should suffer serious repurcussions for their devilry. But they won't.
