I'm standing in a trash can, your honor
From Above The Law:
Did the Louisville Athletic Department really pay an escort (and her daughters) to service basketball recruits? I mean, after we learned that Rick Pitino has sex within the confines of the shot clock and the football program rehired motorcycle enthusiast Bobby Petrino, nothing about Louisville’s sexcapades should really surprise us. But having a staff member hiring escorts for high schoolers seems a bit over-the-top.
For what it’s worth, the staffer accused of procuring the entertainment denies the allegations. He even hired lawyer Scott Cox to make professional, lawyerly statements to the media like branding accuser Katina Powell a “whore” who is “only interested in making money,” which would seem harsh except she’s kind of already admitting that.
But Powell has lawyered up herself and managed to find a lawyer at the bottom of a trashcan. No, that’s not a mean-spirited take on his lawyering skills or ethics, it’s just that he really can be found at the bottom of a trashcan.
The rest of the story is here. HT to UD, whose take is here.
