Law day at LAO

From the email in-box:

  • Quarterback Matt Leinart has agreed to pay Brynn Cameron $15,000 in monthly support for the child they spawned together at USC.
  • Corina Villaraigosa is already billed as "former wife of Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa" on the client list of lawyer Stacy D. Phillips, author of Divorce: It's All about Control and the counselor for the former Mr. Whitney Houston, the ex-Mrs. Jean-Claude Van Damme, the no-longer Mrs. Axl Rose — and Darryl Strawberry. Yeah, I don't think this will be a friendly dissolution.
  • Al Gore III pleaded guilty to two felony counts of drug possession, two misdemeanor counts of drug possession without a prescription and one misdemeanor count of marijuana possession in Orange County. All can be forgiven if he completes a nine-month drug-diversion program. But really, 100 miles an hour in a Prius!
