UPDATE: ROC ROLL AND REMEMBER WITH TUNIS IN 2011.....Breaking today: Judge Dava Tunis to ROC court to fill the Julio Jimenez division. Julio to civil(??). Hottest unconfirmed rumor is that Darrin Gayles, the peripatetic former County Court Judge, who was sent to Seff's old division and never made it (promotion) and then was tentatively scheduled for Juvie/Dependency may never make it there and may end up in Tunis's old division. Stay tuned...bulletins at once (or at least after the gym and spa, or if not then, then after dinner as there is limited internet connection in Bourbon Steak in the 4 Seasons where we have been dining lately.)
Our new Governor is sworn in today at 11:00 am. There will be a parade and fireworks afterward and then a Governor's ball tonight.

One of our favourite biographers- Doris Kearns Goodwin turns 68. Don't miss her Lincoln work- Team of Rivals, as well as her "No Ordinary Time: Franklin and Eleanor."
Don Shula turns 81 today. Happy Birthday Coach: any interest in returning?
Obama's Day: AF One lands around 11:00 am with the first family and then the President is in the oval office in the afternoon. Only scheduled meeting is with Sec Def Gates.
This week in Congress: The 112th Congress is sworn in and then an alphabetic voice role call for a vote for the Speaker of the House. First official order of business? On Thursday they will read the Constitution from 10:30-12:30. Then they will crumple it up and move on to their own special interests.
REGJB ROTATION UPDATE: (via the Colonel of County Court)
Judge Vicki Brennan will leave her comfortable digs at Family Court/Domestic Violence and roll up her robe sleeves and take over Judge Seff's (nee Gayles) DUI division and dive right into to the world of breath samples, roadside exercises, HGN, and such.
Welcome Judge B.

Hall of Fame QB Brett Favre has in all probability left the NFL. No more sports for him. But he will be in a courtroom for a while to come, as a few masseuses from the NY Jets have sued him for losing their jobs after they complained about receiving sexually suggestive text messages.
If he thought D-Line took cheap shots, wait till he gets a load of a bunch of civil lawyers trying to make a name for themselves.
It's nice here in DC. We may stay for a bit.
See you in court.
