Update (October 21, 2013): Like I said below, lawyers, like their closest genetic relatives, human beings, should get professional help if they need it for the illness of alcoholism. I speculate that substance abuse might play a role in the challenges that Twin Cities attorney, Mark Alan Greenman, now seems to be facing.
Original post (January 25, 2013): In the case of Minnesota v. Mark Alan Greenman, the Minnesota Court Appeals this past week ruled that a Segway is not a motor vehicle and we can drive one drunk without fear of criminal prosecution apparently. Note that Minnesota Court of Appeals Judge Roger Klaphake dissented. Apparently, far as he is concerned, a Segway is a motor vehicle.
Alcoholism can be a crippling and even fatal disease. See Lawyers Concerned For Lawyers. Drinking causes problems, legal and otherwise. Lawyers, and also human beings, should get help if they need it.
