The much anticipated, hotly debated, often imitated,
never duplicated, Judge Milton Hirsch summer practice order ( (c) The Honorable Milton Hirsch, 2012 all rights reserved) has been issued:
There is a tide in the affairs of men.
Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune;
Omitted, all the voyage of their life
Is bound in shallows and in miseries.
On such a full sea are we now afloat,
And we must take the current when it serves,
Or lose our ventures.
Brutus, Julius Caesar.
Good afternoon,The judge has officially decided to initiate his “Summer Rules” for the upcoming summer term. Starting July 2nd, 2012 and ending September 4th, 2012, Judge Hirsch’s calendar will begin at 9:30am, as opposed to the original time of 9:00am. Please keep in mind that this will only be in effect for the stated time period. In case this is not abundantly clear, this will ONLY be in effect between July 2nd, 2012 and September 4th, 2012. Come September 5th, 2012, calendar will sadly return to beginning at 9:00am. Thank you! Feel free to call if you have any questions.
Rumpole says: Some addendums to the summer rules: Gin will be exclusively served until September 6, 2012. Gentlemen may wear poplin or seersucker suits from Wednesday through Friday whenst not in trial. Ladies and Gentlemen may begin to wear white through Labor day, but not beyond. Straw wide- brim hats are appropriate for gentlemen at the bar, while the fashionable lady lawyer may enter court with a petite parasol. Shaved ices will be served at Au Bon Pain along with iced tea and mint-sweetened or un-sweet.
FACDL COURT APPOINTMENT MEETING.
Through the power of technology, an alert reader recorded the meeting. To set the scene, a frightened group of small business owners are threatened by a malevolent force about to strike in the summer. They schedule a meeting, and an unlikely, quirky loner offers to save the day- for $10,000.00. So ante up, and watch the video.
"I'll find him for 3...but I'll catch him and kill him for ten....Ten thousand dollars for me by myself. For that you get the head, the tail, the whole damn thing."
Rumpole says: The FACDL needs to hire Quint.
See you In Court.
