PHOTOS FROM SHARPSTEIN EVENT PLUS THE GRINCH

UPDATE: SCRUGGS LEAVES SAO: From Ovalle's Herald article: “I’m exploring whether to get back and do law enforcement here or in Alaska,” said Scruggs, 63, whose last day was Friday."
Now there's a quote you don't see every day.

UPDATE: PRO SE, A-OK. The pro-se defendant who was facing life in prison before Judge Rodriguez-Chomat this week was acquitted of all counts Friday after just slightly less than two hours of deliberation by the jury. The defendant was sentenced to 14 years on the PVH, proving that you can beat the rap, but you can't beat the ride. 

Courtesy of David Ovalle's twitter @davidovalle305, here are some pictures from the event unveiling the plaque honoring our dear colleague Richard Sharpstein. 

Also- a few alert readers sent us a picture in which they are sure they have proof of the Grinch, planing to steal christmas. (see below) 


Three curious judges….

Everyone knows Kenny spends December on the Mexican Rivera, That's a doppelgänger. A fake Kenny. Like the fake Oswald.

“And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow,
stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled 'till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.”

That is not Sir Kenny Weisman … He has an alibi … He was golfing Pebble Beach with Real Former Judge Jonathan Colby at the time and then headed to the Weisman Vineyard in Napa!

Rumpole,
Could you post a photo of Greg Wenzel.
Great story and a tragic loss of talent.
I remember the name but can't recall the face. It also might bring a recollection to some who met him but also cannot place the face.
Thank you

Now you've done it. Blasphemy and not slander but that other one lawyers sue for, like defamation maybe?

First Blasphemy. 11th Corinthians: And there arose from the rubble a denier of the lord, his birth and death and who would steal from the peoples the celebration of his birth and life and he was called the grinch.

Everyone knows the grinch is real. He's in the bible.

And now he has called some poor unsuspecting lawyer the grinch. We can sue this guy. Who's with me? Lets issue the subpoena to google! Lets do it today. I could, but….well I have a Dava issue so I need someone with a bar number. But lets get this guy. He has finally screwed up.!
