Hot Today, Gone Tomorrow

Hotatty Yesterday, when David Lat at Above the Law announced his discovery of the recently launched blog HotAttorney, his immediate reaction was regret that he had not come up with the idea first. This, after all, is the man who brought you the hottest law school deans and America's hottest ERISA lawyers. Of this new site, Lat deferred to Thrillist for the overview:

Started by two outside-the-box e-pervs, HA's goal is to catalog counselors so smokin, it's basically like Law & Order without all the dudes, or Benjamin Bratt. All the goods're pulled from the firms' own sites, with luscious litigators from Portland to Stockholm coming from both emailed tips and the proprietors' own diligent 'net research -- dozens of hours of accidentally looking at photos of men named Courtney. Beyond daily posts, HA's also loaded with special sections like 'Appointed Counsels' (reader-selected), a profile-click-dictated 'Supreme Court', even 'Pretty Paralegals', because the people actually doing the work can be hot, too.

On first glance, Lat's one quibble with the site was its lack of hot male lawyers. But upon further consideration, he had an even bigger beef: The site had disappeared. Within hours of Lat's post announcing the site (and after e-mails from a National Law Journal reporter), the following message appeared at its URL: "The authors have deleted this blog. The content is no longer available." Click the image at left for a larger view of the now-disappeared blog. A Google cache of the page (which may or may not still be here) reveals the blog had operated since early June. No clue is provided for its sudden disappearance. Perhaps its operators were overcome with a sudden case of good taste.
