MagistrateTed Klein in the Hospital.
Word reaches us this afternoon that Federal Magistrate Ted Klein is hospitalized in serious condition on a respirator with an as yet undiagnosed “lung condition.”
Before becoming a Federal Magistrate Ted Klein was widely considered “a lawyers' lawyer” and was one of those few attorneys known, respected, and truly liked by all parties whenever he walked into a courtroom. It goes without saying that he has been a superb federal magistrate and Rumpole sends his best wishes and prayers for a speedy recovery.
JACOBI vs. DEL PINO: WHAT CAME FIRST? THE CHICKEN OR THE EGG?
We keep seeing elections signs around town for Victoria Del Pino and right next to her sign is a sign for her opponent Joel Jacobi. It is clear that one party is going around town putting up their sign next to the other person’s sign. It’s impossible to tell who had the sign up first, but it strikes us that this is a stupid and desperate campaign tactic. We have a feeling who is doing it, but unlike federal prosecutors we don’t go around making unsubstantiated allegations without proof beyond a reasonable doubt.
SUMMER HOURS means that unless something striking happens or we get a bit of inspiration over the weekend our next blockbuster post will be Monday.
Nice to see candidates emailing us with biographical information for purposes of obtaining the coveted Rumpole REGJB Blog endorsement for Judge. That and $5.00 gets you a cup of coffee at Starbucks.
THOUGHT FOR THE WEEKEND:
WAR. WHAT IS IT GOOD FOR? ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.
Without taking sides or getting into a political dispute, it occurs to us that if the 50 and 60 year old men who make the decisions to go to war, had to go and fight the war, there would be a lot less war.
SEE YOU IN COURT.
