Another tipster writes in, and makes a startling allegation:

Hogan & Hartson’s associate attorney layoffs have not just started. Associates have been being laid off since last, December to my knowledge. Most dispicably, the firm is laying off mostly minorities in its first wave of “letting you go when things just don’t work out.” Don’t be confused however, white associates are also being let go. They offer no severance pay or anything else. Associates [are even] being asked to turn in their BlackBerries, or [the cost] will be taken out of their last check.
