'Appellate Nerds' New Image?

Frisbee on obverse!
Once upon a time -- December 8, 1998, to be precise -- the DJ ran a cover story titled 'Appellate Nerds' New Image, featuring "Young, Bookish and Well Schooled" appellate lawyers hoping to become a "new breed" and not the stereotypical "pasty-faced, polyester-wearing librarian types hidden in the back of the library, buried in words."

The Power Of The Dork Side
Have times changed? You be judge: Today the DJ runs an article about H&L associate Eric Boorstin who is a "longtime devotee of Ultimate Frisbee." "He says the back-and-forth over foul calls in the game is reminiscent of courtroom battles."
