Fun Facts about David A. Rubin:
David once met Stan Musial in the bathroom of the old Busch Stadium. He got "the Man's" signature on his scorecard (after everyone had washed their hands...). Sadly, while David was away at camp, his mother threw the signature away, along with all his baseball cards and his scorecards that recorded games involving Cardinal greats like Roger Maris, Lou Brock, Curt Flood, Ken Boyer, and Bill White. It has taken many years for David to get over these losses and as you can see he still has "issues."
David once shared an elevator ride with Jamie Lee Curtis, and discussed the movie "Cocoon", which she viewed as a religious film (hmmm). He also once shared an awkward elevator ride with Joyce DeWitt of "Three's Company." The ride was awkward because a fellow rider continually grilled her about what "she is doing now", and unfortunately, the answers were not very satisfactory. (Hopefully she has found work by now...).
While in law school at the University of San Francisco, David Rubin worked for the United States Attorney's Office. The Division Head was Robert Mueller, the current Director of the F.B.I. During David's internship there, he worked with other attorneys from Mueller's division and successfully prosecuted leader Sonny Barger and the Oakland Hell's Angels Motorcycle Gang for methamphetamine production and sale. Surprisingly, not only did he live to tell about the experience, but he found the Angels to actually be very nice people. (He cautions however, that it is best not to make them mad).
Following law school, David Rubin worked as a clerk for the Chief Justice of the California Supreme Court, Rose Bird. One of the cases he worked on was the Charlie Manson case involving defendant Leslie Van Hauten. Van Hauten complained that the admission of pictures of the crime scene (in which she scrawled the word "pig" on the wall using Sharon Tate's blood) "prejudiced" her jury against her. Testimony in the case included a quote from her to another Manson killer, that she found that the more you stabbed someone, "the more fun it is." The Court denied Van Hauten's appeal. She claims to be rehabilitated now.
