SAME SONG, DIFFERENT BAND
It's the same old song in The Office Of Regional Counsel, just in a different Region.
Region 4 is now in turmoil, and the bad news is that there is no Gene Zenobi clone ready to step in and solve the problems. Low morale, high turnover, top lawyers fired, and general interoffice turmoil all bedevil RC4 which covers Broward, West Palm, and some other counties where they make OJ and grapefruit juice.
The Sun Sentinel article is here. Last week the Governor declined to name any of the two remaining candidates that were forwarded to him (the 3rd candidate, Raag Singhal was appointed to the Circuit bench last month) and the JNC is back to accepting applications: "Help wanted. Attorney needed to run Office Of Regional Counsel. Must be willing to be shunned by fellow defense attorneys who are no longer getting appointments and be tolerant of employees who take a nip of wine every now and then after work."
Meanwhile things are so hunky-dory at our own Regional Counsel Office (Motto: "Now we're happy") that we hear rumors of a celebration dinner happening this coming week.
Dolphins/Jets tonight. Michael Feiler won his suicide pick of the Ravens Sunday. The only thing standing between him and victory are the OH-4 Dolphins.
