So off we go to Judge Blake's chambers. "What's that sign say? 'Due to budgetary cuts....blah blah blah."
So eventually we end up on the 9th floor in the clerk's office begging for a quarter to copy an a-form.
We don't begrudge the current budgetary crisis so severe that Blake et.al., can't spare a sheet of paper.
So what's the answer? We'd call the FACDL (Motto: "Don't call us....we'll call you when your dues are due") but what would they say? "Hi. You've reached the FACDL. If you've gotten this message, then we're in trial. Please leave you name, phone number, and credit card number for dues and we'll call you back as soon as we stop patting ourselves on the back for actually trying a case...." You get the idea.
So being the good capitalist we are, we are suggesting that some consortium of lawyers get together and lease a copier and put it in the second floor attorneys room and sell copies for 20-30 cents a pop.
CAN YOU READ RUMPOLE AT WORK?
It has come to our attention that certain state agencies "block" our humble blog.
We would like some definite answers on this distressing bit of news.
So if you are a PD, or an ASA, or a member of regional counsel, or a JA or a clerk, would you drop us a quick note and let us know who is and who is not blocking our blog.
We'll take it from there.
And finally....how could Jake choose Vienna? Really, she's such a tramp.
