Call Me an Idiot, But Not a Crook

That is the position of lawyers Burt Odelson and Mark Sterk, as reported today by the Chicago Sun-Times. The partners in the Evergreen Park, Ill., firm Odelson & Sterk have filed a libel lawsuit against the Proviso Insider blog, contending that their reputations were damaged by a July posting saying that the two lawyers would be indicted by Chicago U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald. It is one thing for someone to call them lousy laywers, the pair told the Sun-Times, but quite another to say that they had broken the law. "You can say I'm an idiot, but you can't say I'm a crook," Sterk is quoted as saying.
