Employment Lawyers Aren't Always What One Would Think
by Michael Fox
Not that anyone with much of a life would be giving much thought to employment lawyers, but if you did, you might be surprised. Or at least that's the premise of an article in today's Grand Rapids Press the opposing counsel in a current gender discrimination trial involving the Grand Rapids Police department. One is a former staffer in President Reagan's White House in the 1980s and the other is a blues music aficionado and long-time advocate of bringing greater racial and gender diversity to the legal community. If it weren't so obvious that this is a set up, you might be surprised as to their respective clients.
