Karmic Update

A quick update: back on June 13, I noted that the Massachussets law firm of Connolly, Geaney, Ablitt & Willard was on the verge of going under. It's was notable only because the firm which had made its living foreclosing on people was being kicked out of its office after it had been foreclosed on. It now appears that the firm is done. (See Above the Law and Mass Lawyers Weekly [paywall]).

I don't get pleasure from people's suffering, even those who seek to profit from other's people's misfortune. And I am particularly sensitive to the hardships that the firm's failure would cause its staff. Except that here, according to reports, management was already firing people, not paying its taxes, and failing to pay the firm's health care premiums. Sometimes you get what you deserve.
