Utah lawyers are “horrified” after accidentally sending a topless photo advertisement to every state bar member Monday.
Members of the Utah State Bar were in for a surprise after opening an email inviting them to a spring convention in St. George. The email also included a photo of a topless woman, reported the New York Post. The lawyers were allegedly “horrified” after sending the inappropriate email to attorneys in the entire state.
The original invitation enclosed in the email for the spring convention was crafted “in-house” by Bar spokesman Matt Page but he did not add the inappropriate image, he told The Salt Lake Tribune. John Baldwin, the Utah State Bar’s executive director, added that they are investigating the situation to ensure this gaffe won’t happen again, he told Fox 13.
A second email was sent shortly after to clear up the mistake and the Bar apologized on social media 30 minutes after the initial email went out.
“We are aware of the situation and are investigating the matter,” apologized the Utah State Bar in a tweet.
Apologies to all who received an inappropriate email from the Utah State Bar. We are aware of the situation and are investigating the matter.
