Jack Kevorkian's lawyer in trouble.
April 17, 2001 8:33 AM   Subscribe

Jack Kevorkian's lawyer in trouble. He made some negative comments about a few appeals court judges. Not while he was in court, but on a radio talk show. Even so, he could potentially lose his license. His partner said, "Since when is it improper to make comments that are critical of government officials?"

Of course when I say "negative comments", I actually mean he used obscenity and compared the judges to Nazis. Still, outside the courtroom, it seems like he ought to be able to say whatever he wants.

Ah, Feiger's at it again. Beautiful. It's nice to know that moving 2000 miles west of Michigan hasn't kept me out of the loop on his antics. It gives me a warm fuzzy feeling inside.

Odd Feiger trivia: His brother is a member of The Knack.

Wow, rcade, I was just sending this.
This may be common knowledge, but he's the brother of Doug Feiger. Doug is the mastermind behind The Knack, the power-pop band famous for "My Sharona" and "Good Girls Don't". What, I ask you, what does it all mean?!

It means that perhaps the fates will be kind to us, and Geoffrey will be disbarred and fade into obscurity just like Doug.

Feiger is also one of the lawyers on "Power of Attorney", a show which makes "Judge Judy" look like the pinnacle of the American justice system. So at least he still gets to be on TV.
