This is not a headline we expect to be able to repeat. The departure memo of Skadden Arps partner Garrett Waltzer, who announced that he was leaving the practice of law to support the career of his wife, R&B singer TaQuita Thorns, hit the top of blawg charts last week:
I do not plan to practice law. Instead, I have been blessed with the incredible good fortune of being married to TaQuita Thorns, a talented singer from Detroit, Michigan who is just beginning her career in the music business. In addition to writing and recording outstanding R&B, Rock & Soul songs, TaQuita is an energetic performer with a dazzling voice and stunning looks. I am very excited about TaQuita’s prospects. Going forward, I plan to be a supportive husband and do all I can to help TaQuita achieve her mission to improve the world through music and, in the process, become a force in the music industry.
