While researching a string of cites in another case, I came across a 1942 opinion from the Second District COA describing a "young attorney" by the name of Richard M. Nixon, who in 1938 accepted a property in satisfaction of a judgment in his client's favor, allegedly without her consent or knowledge. The Court of Appeal said that Nixon "was occasionally employed by the firm of Wingert and Bewley" as their “outside man...” [whatever that means! (Michael Clayton?)] The trial court apparently found no wrongdoing by our soon to be famous Tricky Dick. The case is Schee v. Holt (1942) 56 Cal.App.2d 364.
