Must be kind, thoughtful. studious, generous, hard working, good looking, a great trial lawyer, knowledgable about wines and football and cosmology and epistemology. The ideal candidate will know a noun from a verb and avoid at all costs ending a sentence with a preposition which is the type of arrant pedantry up with which we will not put. *
H. Rumpole, Esq. Proprietor.
We mean it folks. We need a blogger and soon!
DRESS CODE AT THE JAIL?
There was an "incident" last week at the stockade where an over zealous gaoler refused to let an assistant public defender see her client because she was wearing jeans which was not "court appropriate attire." The FACDL swung into action, headed by Rick Freedman who pulled out his rolodex and dialed appropriate jail authorities who responded that the employee in question had not properly applied the rules. Apologies were issued. Rest assured that in the future you may continue to see your clients in your best pair of Levis.
Good work Mr. Freedman.
* There are many variants of Churchill's famous rant against the rule against ending a sentence with a preposition. This is the one we choose.
