In case you missed it last week, Weil, Gotshal, Manages canned 60 lawyers, cut pay for many partners and basically bar-becued its entire Houston office. While lawyers such as those at Weil who struggle to bill 2100 hours a year will never darken the security line at our humble REGJB, we can still pause a moment and feel sympathy with our brethren. It's never easy to lose your job.
OK. On to things criminal.
THE STATE RESTS
In the George Zimmerman prosecution on Friday. The consensus among the experts seems to be that the prosecution overreached with second degree murder charges. We don't watch such nonsense on TV. But for those of who have indulged in America's favourite sport, what say you?
The long hot summer is underway. Stay cool.
See you in court.
