This breaking news, catching many in Miami by surprise, is that the brain trust of our State Court system has gotten together, and after much discussion and debate, MIAMI STATE COURTS ARE CLOSED FRIDAY DECEMBER 31, 2021. For the four or five of you that had cases and motions and important business scheduled for Friday, you are, to use a legal term, SOL. The first word being the "S word" and the last word being "Luck". As Covid has taught you, struggle on with your valiant efforts. Courts will re-open and there will be a dawn to the darkness of a cold and lonely courthouse on Friday. As Victor Hugo wrote, even the darkest night is followed by a dawn.
What to do with this new-found free time? Head on over to DOM's federal blog and join the debate about the trial tax. He has posted a great article and in the comments some clueless civil lawyer who spends his/her days fretting over interrogatories and motions to compel production has written some nonsense that is just waiting to be smacked down. Have at it.
We are NOT closed on New Year's Eve or New Year's Day.
The fight for truth and justice never sleeps, never takes a day off, and is never closed. Neither is the Blog.
