New Patron Saint for Lawyers?

Forget St. Thomas More and St. Ivo of Kermartin; the Church ought to canonize Martin of Karlovy Vary (in the Czech Republic) as the new patron saint of lawyers.

Now, I grant you, St. Ivo's aliases (he also goes by Erwan and Ives and Yves) are certainly an apt metaphor for the shiftiness of the Bar, and Tom More's stubborn refusal to see reason an apt one for its litigiousness. But Martin? According to MSNBC, Martin has 'em both beat: he perished when he was accidentally buried by an enormous pile of manure.

I rest my case.
