Over at Hewes, Tom is giving Patty the rundown on Claire Maddox. Duke Law School, Supreme Court clerkship, two years at a white collar law firm and then hand-picked by Kendrick for UNR's legal team. Patty lets the information sink in. She has her feet up on the desk and is sipping a glass with about three fingers of Scotch or bourbon or distilled unicorn embryos (whatever it takes to stay young!) and while I admire a woman who drinks, I do think it is odd that she is full on drinking at work while the sun is still out. You can clearly see that it is daylight out the window and even though she is the boss and can do whatever she wants, you have to ask whether she should be. I mean this isn't Mad Men. Tom fills in more details: Kendrick championed Claire's career and now she is the only woman on the legal team and she is vice president to boot. Also, there are the requisite rumors of a relationship between the two (unsubstantiated, of course). Tom then changes tack and circles back to the conversation they already had about the soundness of a legal strategy that involves calling Kendrick a murderer on national television. But, since Patty's assault on UNR is personal, I mean, they aren't representing anyone but Patty's ego at this point, it really doesn't matter what strategy she takes on. Patty claims that she is trying to drive down the UNR stock price. Further discussion is delayed when Patty is served with papers that inform her that she is being sued by UNR/Walter Kendrick for $200 million dollars for defamation of character. $200 million? I know his ego is big, but is his good name really worth $200 million?
