Like many of us, Lori Loughlin is in the process of planning her summer vacation. But while the biggest obstacle standing between most of us and a relaxing getaway is asking our bosses if we can take some time off, Loughlin must first seek permission from a much more formidable vacation gatekeeper: a judge.
That’s because Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, have only recently completed their respective prison sentences for their involvement in the college admissions scandal, which saw the couple accused of paying $500,000 to ringleader Rick Singer to falsely designate their daughters as crew recruits at the University of Southern California. Loughlin and Giannulli completed their sentences in December and April, respectively, and remain under two years of supervised release. So while you may be cowering at the prospect of asking your boss for time off and drafting a TED talk arguing why, precisely, you need and deserve a vacation (to which your boss will probably just respond something to the effect of, “I literally don’t care. Please just take a vacation and stop bothering me, I’m trying to do work, unlike some people”) at least you don’t have to petition an actual executor of the law, which is what Loughlin did.
