A NEW DAY IS AT HAND
Saturday brings 15 some odd supplicants to a downtown law firm to be interviewed by the Supreme Court JNC for the position of Regional Counsel, Third Region (Miami and parts of Hialeah and the Florida Keys). All the applicants will be trying to show that they too can fire the very best attorneys the office has for almost no reason.
Anyone want to live blog the interviews? They are open to the public, donchaknow.
BENCH AND BAR MIXER
There's a Bench and Bar mixer at some bar on October 6, 2011. Besides the fact that we don't associate with persons of low moral character (or is that "low morale character"?) there is the issue for our Bar members of the 12 tribes of Israel: October 6 happens to be gob smack in the middle of the high holy days observed by the more Jewish members of our legal community, and day before the beginning of two days of observance, prayer, introspection and one day of fasting.
Not really the brightest or culturally sensitive decision to throw a soiree' in the middle of ten days of solemn introspection.
Be it resolved that we, Rumpole, do hereby highly pledge to avoid bench and bar mixers, and the denizens who habituate them, for the following year. (Better to forsake that then the alcohol served at such assemblies or rendezvous's.)
Enjoy the weekend, get your suicide pool picks into the proper and correct email address.
