We weren't there and we didn't see it. However, after reading the article, and after having been in these courts for well over 20 years, we can speculate that it went something like this: a judge got upset because things didn't go exactly the way she wanted them to, and being a Judge means you always get your way, right?
Or something like that.
Our point being, stop whining and making a federal case out of the fact that a PD was not ready to try a third degree felony. That's been happening in our building since most of these judges were in diapers.
See you in court, ready for trial.
