“One of the best Auckland lawyers” struck off over incompetent advise to nude model charged with indecent act.”
The above is a Herald heading which lifted my spirits. But it still can’t top a wonderful Dominion newspaper heading nearly 40 years ago, namely, “Chainsaw wielding transvestite attacked Mr Whippy man.” That was world class.
For the record the “one of the best…” was the lawyer’s description of himself, the nude model was a male and his offence was masturbating while posing for a single female artist client.
This sort of stuff enriches our lives. Perhaps a sensible defence would have been for the male model to claim he was so overcome by his artist client’s beauty he couldn’t help himself, thus in the circumstances showed admirable restraint in merely masturbating.
