There has to be something else going on re. Jason getting fired. He wasn't representing his firm in HWofNY--no one on the show ever mentioned his employer's name. As noted above, he was never depicted drunk or in an undignified way--what possible grounds could this be for firing? I don't care how "private" the firm is, unless he signed a contract that expressly forbade his appearing on a television show, there's something else going on.
