FANTASY FOOTBALL: we have 4 divisions and
19 18 17 16 15 open spots and the battle for second place (to us) is on. Send us an email to join. If we get more than 20 people, we can add divisions.
PRE-TRIAL DIVERSION: DID YOU KNOW?
That a semi-secret pre-trial diversion for first time drug offenders who do not need to go to drug court has been available for several months? According to insiders, each judge runs the program a bit differently. Some run it through standard PTI, while others will just require your client to randomly show up and provide some urine. The program apparently is for the defendant who does not have a drug problem but who was arrested, perhaps in a club, with drugs, for reasons unrelated to having an addiction (use your imagination on this one). Next time you get a case like that, ask the PD in the courtroom what the judge's policy is. And don't forget to use the secret handshake.
JUDICIAL FUNDRAISERS: QUERY- should we post them on the blog? Our view is, in for a penny, in for a pound. If we post one, we post them all.
What judge "deserves" an opponent? Ooo...there are some judges who just hate seeing that on the blog. But post some thoughtful comments and we just might conduct a poll. (comments like "so and so should get an opponent because they got their spot because of their hispanic, jewish, nepalese, etc, surname, is not sufficient.)
We neglected to post the very fine obituary done by Herald Reporter David Ovalle. Please read it.
And next time you see Ovalle guzzling black coffee and huddled in one of his wi-fi hot spots in the REGJB, give him a few clucks like a chicken. Ovalle hasn't yet signed up for the suicide pool or our fantasy football league. But then again, what can you expect from a Chargers fan.....?
Long weekend coming up. Who's not working Friday (we're not even working Thursday)?
See you in court.
