“Did You Get a Cease and Desist Letter”? Click.

Much like a certain peg-legged captain, The Intrepid One™ has been doggedly hunting an angry white sperm whale reporting on the recent travails of prominent attorney Jeremy Alters.

In today’s DBR Julie reports on what happens when you ask the wrong question:

Plaskett of Duane Morris said he sent a cease-and-desist letter to Alters ordering him to remove Taylor’s photos and any mention of him from No Ceilings’ website several weeks ago. The website was out of commission today with a notice saying, “Updated site coming soon!” Alters denied ever claiming Taylor was a client. “He’s represented by CAA,” Alters said today. “He’s a friend of mine.”

Alters hung up when asked whether he received a cease-and-desist letter from Plaskett.

Hung up?  On Julie? Now that’s just wrong. Use your sweet tongue, your gifts of subtle persuasion, the art of misdirection, ply her with roses — anything — but to simply pull the rip cord on the entire conversation?

Do you really want to make Julie mad?
