Summer is officially over. Now a quick slog to the holidays and then the end of the year. We have a few trials set, so we will be busy.
The suicide pool is shaping up. If you haven't received an email from us at fbpool12 at gmail then you are NOT in. To register send an email to that address, not our regular address, with the phrase "Joel Brown makes me frown" in the subject line. We will respond and confirm that you are in. Miguel De La Over, Feet of Clay Kaiser, Kenny Weisman, Robert Kuntz, Marshall Dore Louis, BDTD, Nick Basso, Adam T2, Michael Grieco, former Judge Jon Colby, and Shumie's Cigar headline an all star field of lawyers vying for the prestigious title this year.
A word about football picks: For years now we have astounded the touts and critics by posting public picks and winning at a rate no other public tout can approach. Alas, many things come to an end, and we cannot promise that we will be posting football picks every week this year. First, we have some important matters to attend to. Second, our inside source in these matters- 52nd Street Irwin will not be available for another 16 months or so, if you get our meaning.
Third, it's just not something we cannot guarantee we will do every week this season.
NEW HIRES: at the PD and SAO. We haven't forgotten you. Hang in there, your post is coming.
"Sandy, Baby": SCOTUS blog reports that Justice O'Connor recently sat on the 9th Circuit in Montana at a special session held at a law school. The Justice then addressed the students afterwards. We're a big fan of appellate courts holding sessions outside of their normal courthouses. It brings the law to the people. We once argued a nasty case before an appellate court which held session at a high school and you could see the minds of the students engaging by what they saw and heard. It only takes one special experience to set a young person on the road to a career (which is why we strongly recommend educators limit their charges access to attorneys and judges -especially the latter.)
We're in court today. Are you?
