    Report: Warren May Have Illegally Practiced Law In MA Without License

    Massachusetts Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren may have practiced law in Massachusetts for years without a license to do so, according to a newly surfaced report.

    Republican Sen. Scott Brown — whom Warren is challenging — reminded viewers that Warren helped represent The Travelers Insurance Company on an asbestos case which reached the Supreme Court in 2009.

    In May, the Boston Globe reported that Warren argued that case before the Supreme Court. “Six months after Elizabeth Warren arrived in Washington to work as an adviser to Congress, she experienced another career milestone in the nation’s capital, a seat at the US Supreme Court’s mahogany counsel table,” the Globe wrote. “The 2009 appearance was the only time Warren helped represent a party before the nation’s highest court. And it provides a rare window into a less-heralded aspect of the Harvard Law professor’s career, her time as a working attorney in the courts.”

    According to the Legal Insurrection blog, this was hardly the only case Warren was involved in. “Warren represented not just Travelers, but numerous other companies starting in the late 1990s working out of and using her Harvard Law School office in Cambridge, which she listed as her office of record on briefs filed with various courts,” Legal Insurrection’s William A. Jacobson reported on Monday morning.

    There’s just one caveat: “Warren, however, never has been licensed to practice law in Massachusetts.”

    One of the perks of being a Harvard professor and a Democrat....they have a secret handshake exclusion to any and all laws perpetrated in Massachusetts.

    ms warren appeared on michael graham's podcast, 96.9fm, boston, this morning:

    News Talk 96.9 Boston Audio On-Demand

    "are you not admitted to the MA bar?"

    "no"

    "don't you practice?"

    "no, this is a non policy question"

    must come as a surprise to travelers and her other clients

    it's probably news too to the 7 remaining supreme court justices she argued in front of

    and the folks she billed for $212,000 of legal work are perhaps nonplussed, as well

    that's a lot of wampum

    A silly post is silly. Back to the topic at hand, Squaw Warren could have been providing consulting services for that fee rather than working as legal representation. Also, you don't need to pass the bar to be a Senator or even a sitting president, but you can't be in jail. They draw the line there.

    Isn't this grounds for being disbarred?

    It's nice she had an office, though. Poor Mitt Romney had to live in his son's unfinished basement when he voted illegally in Mass.

    today:

    Democrat Elizabeth Warren, who has made fighting for workers a focus of her Senate campaign, was a hired legal gun for a steel conglomerate trying to dodge paying health and pension benefits to thousands of retired coal miners, records show.

    Warren represented LTV Steel in 1995, when she was a Harvard Law professor, aiding the bankrupt company’s bid to overturn a court ruling forcing it to pay its former employees and dependents $140 million in retirement benefits.

    Warren was one of two LTV lawyers who wrote a petition to the U.S. Supreme Court challenging the appellate court decision siding with the coal miners, documents obtained by the Herald show. The high court never took up the case.

    Warren was paid about $10,000 for her work, according to her campaign. The latest disclosure comes after the Herald reported that Warren defended an insurance giant against asbestos victims.

    Some states are more picky than others. I suppose theoretically you could do something that would be deemed okay by your bar but unauthorized practice by another bar.

    MA can't disbar anyone not a member of the MA bar.

    But unauthorized practice of law could carry jail time. (Probably will not.)
