Go-ll-e-e-e-eee... ANOTHER suicide that I somehow don't believe is one...

there's an awful lot o'suicidin' goin' on...

jonathan turley...

There is some more bad news for the D.C. bar this afternoon. Legal Times is reporting that Mark Levy, a well-known lawyer who headed the Supreme Court and Appellate Practice section of Kilpatrick Stockton has killed himself in his office — reportedly by a gunshot of a .38 calibre handgun to the head. The firm had told Levy that he was about to be laid off with a number of other lawyers due to the economy.

yeah, well, whatever... maybe so, maybe no... i'm inclined to doubt almost any and every story of current and former top officials committing 'suicide'... it's just too easy a way to get 'em to STFU...


Based on detectives' interviews, police learned that Levy had been told he was among those being let go, according to a law enforcement official familiar with the case. Kilpatrick Stockton's Web site says Levy was head of the firm's Supreme Court and Appellate Advocacy Practice. He argued 16 cases before the U.S. Supreme Court during his career, it says.

Another source familiar with the case, speaking on the condition of anonymity because the investigation is not complete, said that yesterday would have been Levy's last day at work and that he was given four months of severance pay.

see anything wrong with this picture...? hmmmmm...? how likely is it that a major law firm in washington d.c. would lay off a former deputy assistant attorney general and the HEAD of its supreme court practice...? hmmmmmm...?? bloody UNLIKELY, i say...
