Earlier this week, a 70 year old man in Phoenix who was in litigation with a company he had done business with went to a building where a settlement conference in the case was to be held, and opened fire. He shot and killed Steve Singer, 48, the CEO of the company, shot a woman who happened to be nearby in the hand, and shot the company’s lawyer, Mark Hummels, 43, before fleeing and killing himself.
Mark Hummels died this morning. Newspaper accounts say he leaves a wife and two young children.
Two lawyers have been shot and killed this week because of what they do. What kind of madness is that?
