A field of lovely lovely lupins.

The WSJ Law Blog calls these California general counsel moves musical chairs in techland: 

  • Lou Lupin left Qualcomm (San Diego).  Donald Rosenberg departed Apple (Cupertino).  Daniel Cooperman exited Oracle (Redwood Shores).
  • Mr. Rosenberg replaced Mr. Lupin at Qualcomm.  Mr. Cooperman took Mr. Rosenberg’s Apple spot.  And Oracle’s own Dorian E. Daley succeeded Mr. Cooperman.

All of which leaves only Mr. Lupin without a place to sit.

These developments recalled to Blawgletter a Monty Python sketch that featured the highwayman Dennis Moore.  Mr. Moore steals lupins from rich people and gives them to peasants.  But later he starts taking valuables and does such a fine job that the wealthy become the poor and vice versa.

Which raises the question:  What accounts for the flowering mobility of general counsel?  Have they become more valuable?  More accountable?
