Affirmative action run amok

The Minneapolis office of Dorsey & Whitney recently accepted the resignation of a woman posing as an attorney who had worked as an associate at the firm for about six months.

The woman resigned after an internal investigation by the firm revealed that the woman — who was working in a business group at the firm — was not admitted to practice law in any state and had produced a false transcript from the University of Minnesota Law School.

According to TPAM, a Minnesota lawyer, the woman is an Indian woman who recently dated a friend of his. TPAM wasn’t surprised to hear about her being a fraud, since she didn’t know a law professor at the U that she should have known.
