What a bunch of MoFos

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg issued the strangest of proclamations last week when he designated 23 October as Morrison & Foerster (MoFo) Day in the city.


New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg issued the strangest of proclamations last week when he designated 23 October as Morrison & Foerster (MoFo) Day in the city.

The proclamation marked the high point of MoFo’s celebration of the 20th anniversary of its New York office.

It made special reference to the firm’s commitment to public service and diversity. It sounded like the kind of occasion for the firm’s in-house rock band (yes, it has an in-house rock band) the MoFonics.

But it appears this was not the time for rock ‘n’ roll. The firm issued the following very serious statement: “We have been advised by the city that even on Morrison & Foerster Day, normal parking rules and alternate street parking regulations remain in effect.”

Shame. Tulkinghorn wanted a party and the chance to rock out to the MoFonics’ classic All I Want To Do Is Sue Somebody.
