Happiness

is when you come home thrilled with the work you did. Also, when you know you made the right decisions. I’m looking forward to going to work tomorrow, and almost disappointed that it’s a long weekend, because that means I don’t get to be in court on Friday. My satisfaction may have to do with…

Hurry Up and Wait – It’s Not Just for Interns

Thursday was an interesting day. It was supposed to be the day for the preliminary hearing (see “Guilty” for an explanation of what that means) for a high profile sex abuse case. The hearing was scheduled for 9:00 am. Shortly after 9:00, we found out that the defendant wasn’t at the courthouse. He decided to refuse…

The pictures here are from the last week or so. Hopefully…
