Their lockstep progress had previously hit a snag in high school. There, Tracey and Tina were valedictorians, and Tammie was merely salutatorian because of an A-minus in phys. ed. for something that happened during a coed basketball scrimmage. "One of the boys got mad," says Tammie, "and he came at me—so I hit him."
Together through the University of Montana Law School, the triplets are finally going their separate ways. Tracey is working for a Missoula firm that specializes in malpractice; Tina is in general practice in Butte; and Tammie is doing "contract" work in Missoula, picking up overload cases from lawyers around town. Someday, they hope, there will be a shingle that reads MORIN, MORIN & MORIN.
At that point, Montana plaintiffs will know exactly where to go to seek triple damages.
