Utah State Bar sends every local lawyer an email of a topless woman

SALT LAKE CITY — Lawyers across Utah opened their email inboxes on Monday afternoon to be greeted by an image of a topless woman.

An email shared with FOX 13 that included an image of a topless woman. (Image has been edited to conceal nudity.)

The email (shared with FOX 13 by several lawyers) was advertising the Utah State Bar’s annual spring convention in St. George when an image of a woman’s breasts was somehow attached.

The Utah State Bar, which certifies all attorneys in Utah, was mortified and quickly sent out an apology to everyone on the email list.

“We are horrified,” John Baldwin, executive director of the Bar, said in an email. “We are investigating to discover how this occurred. Our goal is to find out what happened and insure [sic] it never happens again.”

On Twitter and over texts, attorneys reacted with amusement.

“I can’t circulate this fast enough. Hysterical,” another attorney texted to FOX 13.
