Less than one month after a piece appeared in this very space regarding the Legal Genius "I'm Rich, B*t$h" billboard facing EB I-96 traffic nearing the Southfield Freeway--the billboard has been removed. We, meaning me, hear at Attorneybutler.net do not claim credit for this development. More likely the sponsoring "law firm" may have felt pressure from several sources suggesting that the filing of a grievance with the Stat Bar was appropriate. I don't know if a grievance was filed--personally I doubt it. Firstly, if it had been, the claim that this billboard was alone in holding the profession up to ridicule could have been successfully refuted with numerous examples of legal advertising drivel infesting the highways and airwaves. Secondly, the billboard was replaced with the Legal Genius "Lawyers With Huge Balls" opus--hardly a tribute to the decorum of the profession.
That this is billboard is gone, whatever the reason, is cause for celebration.
