How Not To Respond To A Criminal Defense Lawyer When He Doesn't Hire You

Colleague sent me this e-mail he received in response to him rejecting a candidate for his firm:

"That was the biggest mistake you ever made......ur hiring a law clerk and u were fortunate enough to find a licensed attorney with the academic credentials i have to interview for it. You'll come to regret that decision when the candidate you selected falls on their face or leaves you hanging and u will especially regret it when i go to te state attorney's office and whip you guys in court every time i come up against you. Good luck to u and ur second rate, pitiful little firm."

Any advice for junior?
