The family "forgets" a young boy. He is left home alone.
The result, for movie-goers, was a hilarious couple of hours taking in what young boys do when left without adult supervision.
However, in real-life that can generate serious consequences.
Jones Day partner in the New York office, Locke McMurray, is finding that out. As lawyer-journalist, Kathryn Rubino, reports on Abovethelaw, Locke's former wife, Jennifer McMurray, has taken legal action against him. Here is Rubino's coverage. coverage.
Jennifer alleges that Locke left their two sons, ages 10 and 16, home alone. That was when he and his new romantic interest went to Paris. Jennifer found that out through Facebook.
Locke and Jennifer have joint custody. Now Jennifer wants sole custody. Allegedly, Locke violated the divorce agreement. Also she is requesting that Locke pay a $50,000 fine for not sticking with the terms and conditions of the divorce.
Where Locke works - Jones Day's New York office - is where the next White House General Counsel is also perched. That's Donald McGahn. He represented legal aspects of the Make America Great Again campaign.
Of course, the Locke alleged development can tarnish the Jones Day brand. At this time it has been riding high. Among other good things going for it is that its lawyers are involved with the Trump transition initiatives.
