Out of the loop at the REGJB, we nevertheless post some interesting things that arrived in our mailbox.
Let's have a one day post dedicated to the following:
Who is the most overrated and underrated defense attorney and prosecutor in the courthouse?
Rumpole replies: We are by far the most underrated defense attorney in the building. We labour away in obscurity, winning cases, but neither fame nor fortune.

Rumpole says: We look at average per day and time spent reading. That means over six hundred people find five minutes a day to take a break and relax. And we are glad we can help.
A reader had an epiphany:
OMG I KNOW WHO RUMPOLE IS OR AT LEAST I HAVE FIGURED OUT A CLUE
THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX
What Box means something to us? A JURY BOX
Who or what is outside the box?
A CORRECTIONS OFFICER
A COURT REPORTER
Rumpole, am I thinking outside the box?
This clue was so simple, it was right in front of our noses all the time.
And we responded:
9:06. Take a bow. You, my friend, "think outside the box."
Now I'm not saying you are correct ,however I will reward you for
thinking about something no one else has.
Send me a private email, and I will send you a juicy clue, just for you.
Certain well known federal bloggers take issue with our grammar, and mock us by complaining about our usage of "I" versus "Me".
Here is part of the offending offal:
"Maybe Rumpole is A.G., as he often makes similar grammar gaffes on his blog..."(Shouldn't that read "grammatical gaffes...? Bloggers who write in glass offices shouldn't throw stones. Or put another way, "let he who has not published a typo throw the first stone.")
"I" will not take this sitting down.
It is time to show our friend from "Harvahard" the power of the people- those of us not blessed with the clientele that allow us to practice in the cathedrals ruled by the Federal College Of Cardinals.
If you have an embarrassing story, picture, or court transcript of our favourite federal blogger, and want it to be seen by 700 or so of the Miami Legal Community, email it to us in private. Your anonymity is assured.
See You in court after Labor Day.
