While at the AALS Conference, I Have Not Witnessed Any of This
Posted by Christine Hurt

But, I probably wouldn't have been invited.  The WSJ reports today that four Morgan Stanley has fired four employees for taking clients to an "adult entertainment" venue during a business trip.  Although in years past this may have been business as usual, after MS had to pony up big bucks in 2004 in a sex discrimination case brought by a female trader (which Scott Moss, who worked on the case, can tell you about personally at any time!), MS now has rules forbidding such exclusionary outings on business trips. 

Biltmore When I started practicing law in 1993 in the South, stories of these types of jaunts among attorneys and attorneys/clients were widespread.  (If you've ever driven on the Loop in Houston and looked at the billboards, you know how widespread this type of activity is!)  But surely we've come a long way since then.  Notably, the MS guys were at the Arizona Biltmore.  If you can't think of anything else to do at one of the most beautiful places in the world than go to a sleazy strip club, there's something wrong with you.
