What do Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr., Eric Holder and Adam Reposa have in common? In addition to being well-known attorneys, their noteworthy mustaches, reports Bloomberg Law in a video posted on YouTube in honor of the Movember men's health initiative.
Other memorable legal "lip rugs" include those sported by Johnnie Cochran, Alan Dershowitz, Douglas Ginsburg, Jan Schlichtmann, William Howard Taft, Clarence Thomas and Donald Verrilli, notes the video. It also points out that staff of Bloomberg Law are participating in the annual event, which encourages men–and women–to grow mustaches to raise awareness and money for men's health issues.
Readers, what do you think? Are there any famous legal faces that should have been included in the roundup but weren't?
