Chicago “Happy Meal” lawyer gets ruling

A Chicago lawyer came close to losing his right to practice in Florida after he told a judge during a court hearing, “I suggest with respect, your honor, that you’re a few French fries short of a Happy Meal in terms of what’s likely to take place.” The lawyer was admitted to the bar in Illinois and Ohio and was in danger of losing his ability to practice in other states.
