'Chapter Nein!' takes the stage


 A (Habeas) Chorus Line presented its annual public performance on Friday, Oct. 25, at Berkley High School auditorium.  

This year’s show was titled “Chapter Nein!” and lampooned NSA data collection, right-to-work laws, flying carp, IRS shenanigans, Detroit mayors past and future, family vacations and, of course, the Detroit bankruptcy.  

Warming up with their prop carp before the show were AHCL members (left to right) Angela Williams, deputy general counsel with the Detroit Housing Commission; Southfield attorney Brian Figot, executive director of the Federal Bar Association; Justin Klimko of Butzel Long PC; Michael Leibson, retired assistant U.S. attorney; Joseph LaBella, vice president, director of contracts for Jack Morton Worldwide; Rochester Hills attorney Judy Zorn; James Robb, associate dean and senior counsel of Thomas M. Cooley Law School in Lansing; Mark Lezotte of Butzel Long; and Sara Fischer, a former case manager for the U.S. District Court, Eastern District of Michigan.  

AHCL was formed in 1992 for what the group thought was a one-time engagement for the local chapter of the Federal Bar Association. Since then they have performed at venues throughout Michigan and around the country.
