Nesson, she said, constantly carries a tiny digital tape recorder around their Cambridge house and must have turned it on when she wasn't looking. "He is literally a person who believes in openness," said Fern Nesson, who apparently holds no grudge and has apologized to the student. "He feels his life is an artwork."And, given an opportunity to clear up the lingering fuzziness over whether he had his client's permission to reveal confidential internal deliberations -- as required by the Massachusetts Rules of Professional Conduct -- Nesson instead got a bit metaphysical:
"Did he give permission?" he said. "I represent him. I am him. We are one.""I am him. We are one"??? So...if the jury returns a verdict for the plaintiffs, is Nesson on the hook for the damages?
