And the Oscar goes to....
Judges Tanya Brinkley and Michelle Alvarez- Barakat were elevated to Circuit Court by our new governor.
We don't know much about either, but we did have occasion last year to handle a few bond hearings before Judge Brinkley and we left her courtroom impressed.
Congrats to both Judges.

Uhho David Ovalle, you guys have some major competition.
Next up: Le Monde (which we read voraciously) covers weekend bond hearings.
