SAUL THE SOLICITOR
This episode was classic Slippin' Jimmy. While the previous two episodes had very little to deal with the law and ethics, RICO was chalk full of ethical dilemmas and legal issues.
Let's play softball first. I noticed several tweets about Jimmy trespassing and jumping into the garbage bin. Let's put aside the fact that Jimmy may have been trespassing, ok? The question is whether Jimmy, or any other person could have gone through that trash? The answer, YES! Why? Jimmy did a good job telling you why; you do not have a reasonable expectation of privacy in stuff you put out on your curb. Read this wikipedia page about the 4th amendment case from the Supreme Court that set this precedent.
The second major issue in this case is whether Jimmy was unethical in soliciting all those senior citizens in an attempt to gather clients to sue the nursing home? The answer again, YES! Why? Because his primary motivation was to make money.
