- A disciplinary hearing panel recommends that Brian Bloomfield's license be suspended for five years followed by the ultimate punishment of being required to take the bar exam again. However, the panel's recommendation is just that and the State Bar is still asking for him to be disbarred. Ultimately, it is the decision of the Supreme Court of Nevada. (Really? What does that say about our profession that the entrance exam is considered punishment?) [RJ]
- Speaking of punishment, congrats to those who survived day 3 of the bar exam? Anyone have any wild stories to share from this year's exam?

If you head over to Vegas Inc. you will see an article detailing the 54,000 sq. ft. Hughes Center office Gordon Silver left behind when it moved to its new 2,883 sq. ft. first floor office. Oh how the mighty have fallen. From the article, it looks like their new office does not have a well-ventilated cigar and poker room known as the Partners Lounge. Which got us thinking? Do any other firms have the equivalent of a Partners Lounge? How about a game room? We know Craig Kenny has got a basketball court. What other special features do Las Vegas law offices have?
