It was fun and frivolity at the FACDL swearing in ceremony. No awards this year, although great lawyering was done.
Judge Milton Hirsch swore in the bored members, with references to large bottles of champagne, and One Hundred Years of Solitude, which is what the last year felt like. Judge Sayfie swore in Kevin Hellmann with a humorous anecdote to her time as an assistant public defender taking over a division run by Margot Moss, CLI. In fact, it just occurred to us that Mr. Hellmann and his wife Ms. Moss have accomplished something even the Clinton's - that equally famous power couple- were unable to do.
We crashed the party and took exclusive and never before seen video.
