August 19 lunch with psychopath (detector):

Orange County Bankruptcy Forum. Detecting Psychopaths in the Legal Field. Bazoian Phelps. Costa Mesa.


August 19, Monday Night Lawyer Movie Club Unless It's On Tuesday:

At 7:50 p.m. on August 19, we will see "Good Boys" rated 81% on at the Regal (1000 West Olympic Boulevard). Before the movie, at 6:15 p.m., we will meet for dinner and beverages at the Yard House (800 West Olympic Boulevard).

Now, we WOULD BE GOING to see "Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark" at 7:20 p.m., but Mr. Salvato reminded us that the MNLMCUIOT made him watch "Spider-Man: Far From Home" (yes, there is a dash in Spider-Man) from the from row at the Regal in 4DX and it took him two days to recover from the 4DX seats that jump around and splashed him in water -- so he is entitled to veto "Scary Stories, etc." So we are seeing "Good Boys." Seriously. Don't try to argue with Salvato.

Every now and then, members of the Monday Night Lawyer Movie Club Unless It's On Tuesday gather for a bite (usually at a restaurant at LA Live, next to Staples Center, 800 West Olympic Boulevard) and watch the latest film at the Regal Cinema (also at LA Live, 1000 West Olympic Boulevard, Los Angeles). For upcoming film selections, dates, and times, visit or send a note to
