No Glove, No Love
Remember Frederick Tanne, the Kirkland & Ellis partner who sued his ex-wife, her lover, and anyone she ever met because he thought she gave him herpes? Well, even though Tanne was wrong about who gave him the herpes, his case provides a valuable lesson for all. If you’re going to cheat, use protection, because nobody wants to be busted by a burning sensation and a trip to the doctor’s office.
