It's the first day of summer, and (male) lawyers in Miami will wear clothes that are more appropriate for a brisk fall day than 90 degree with 95% humidity.
And still the chief judges in Federal and State court blink in wonderment and ignore this preposterous dress code tradition for those lawyers with the X and Y chromosome (for our circuit court judges, we are talking about men).
When will this madness stop?
SONG SUNG BLUE
ATL took the fancy pants at Skaaden in DC to task for their snootiness over the playing of music outside their offices by street performers. One of their solutions? We are not making this up- they are considering hiring a string quartet to get their earlier to prevent the street performers from plying their trade.
Jeeze We would love to get those lawyers in a real court and clean their clock. A string quartet? Where we grew up, if you didn't like something in the street, you showed up with some friends, maybe a bat, and settled the matter. These punks want to sing doo-wop.
The smack down is here.
Welcome back. Lets try some cases!
