A couple of months ago, I commented on a decision of the Supreme Court of Ohio which found that a lawyer had violated a number rules of professional conduct by using a firm name with the phrase "and Associates" when, in fact, the lawyer did not have any associates. Interestingly, I just read that Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor may have done the same thing at one point in the past. She referred to her firm as "Sotomayor and Associates" but it is not clear that she had any associates. For the full story go here.
