I’m about to hit the road to Montreal to teach a CLE at the YLD Thaw. So, no time for a real quiz this week.  Instead, I’ve posted answers to questions I’ve used in the past. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to identify the particular ethics issue that the question must have addressed.

  • No rules. Open book & search engine, consult with friends.
  • Except #5
  • email answers to michael.kennedy@vermont.gov

Question 5

This actress holds the record for most Emmy’s for Outstanding Actress in a Comedy Series.

She did not win for her brief stint in Arrested Development, when she played a prosecutor who, among other things:

  • Spent most of her career pretending to be blind to draw sympathy from jurors & judges;
  • Slept with a defendant’s son mid-trial to try to gain access to incriminating evidence.
  • During one trial, pretended to be pregnant to draw sympathy from jurors

Name the actress.
