Lawyer Joke Lands Pair in Jail

Harvey Kash and Carl Lanzisera founded Americans for Legal Reform, which has a long history of complaining vociferously about the judicial system. But a joke made Tuesday while standing in line outside a courthouse in New York got them arrested on disorderly conduct charges.

The joke?
Q: "How do you tell when a lawyer is lying?"
A: "His lips are moving"

The pair are due in court next month to face the charges. Not surprisingly, they are expected to plead protection under the First Amendment's guarantee of free speech.
