Armed with fluency in Italian and an oddball passion for “sovereign immunity law,” Berkeleyite Jeffrey Lena has fast become the Vatican’s legal poster boy. Lena will soon defend Benedict XVI’s honor before the Supreme Court as the Holy See continues to be slammed by law suits: sex, copyright and Nazi sympathizer scandals aplenty.

While the exact location of his Berkeley firm remains under wraps, keep your eyes peeled for a man in a funny hat saying Hail Marys in the Gourmet Ghetto. Ten bucks says he’s got his Prius pimped out with a Sistine Chapel mural.
