Lawyer Mark Lambert , an attorney with the Cochran Firm in Memphis, has been sued by Greg Herbers, a Memphis hair stylist, over injuries Herbers says he received in an alteration with Lambert in the bathroom of a Memphis bar.

According to the story in the Commercial Appeal, Herbers

 

entered the restroom around 9 p.m. and noticed the one stall was occupied by two men "performing some activity other than going to the bathroom." Herbers said that when he told the men he needed to use the toilet, Lambert, who was standing at the urinal but appeared to know the men in the stall, became aggressive. Lambert allegedly approached Herbers in a "menacing" fashion and jumped on him, grabbing his head and clawing at his neck.  Herbers said the next thing he felt was excruciating pain.  He heard teeth crunch and noticed blood pouring from his left nostril.  

Nashville is mourning the death of Steve McNair, former quarterback of the Tennessee Titans.

McNair was murdered during the early morning hours of Saturday, July 4.  It is not completely certain who murdered him, but news reports indicate that the police are not looking for suspects and appear to be exploring whether McNair’s 20-year old girlfriend, Sahel Kazemi, killed McNair and then shot herself in the head.  Apparently, the gun was found under Kazemi’s body.

USA Today has reported that the handgun recovered at the scene was recently purchased by Kazemi.  The Tennessean has a similar story.  Federal law prohibits those under 21 from purchasing a handgun from a licensed dealer.  The identity of the gun seller has not been released to the public (if it is even known).
