I'm back!

I admit it -- I was on vacation and just got back late last night... That's the reason for the slow blogging. I'm catching up on mail, DBRs, email, and so on. Ahhh, the joy of returning to work. Just a quick skim of the inbox shows that there are some really interesting things going on -- John Pacenti had a great article in yesterday's DBR about attorney's fees in criminal cases, and in today's DBR, Billy Shields discusses how the Justice Building Blog broke a fascinating story about the removal of a state prosecutor from a homicide investigation. Will have more soon.... In the meantime, send me an email if you know of something interesting happening in the new federal courthouse!

I'm sitting in my office still in a vacation mind set. I need a drink.

11:30, I keep a fully stocked bar in my office, it's disguised as a filing cabinet.

12:10, I'll be there after hours to get loaded.

"send me an email if you know of something interesting happening in the new federal courthouse!"

I witnessed something interesting, I spotted SFL and the princess holding hands at the courthouse.

The two of them have yet to post, it's no fun teasing them on their pages until they do.

SFL is back. He's cooking dinner for the princess.

david you should post the stuff from rumpole's blog re the state prosecutor's removal. i know you are from haaahvad and never would you lower yourself to pratice in state court, but many readers are interested in what happens over there and it is, as you point out, a very interesting story that people who arent logged into dbr should be able to read about it.

"Something interesting in federal court" ? You mean like "Judge Gold speaks!!!!"

Or Judge Huck granting a continuance?

Or the prosecution saying "it appears there is not sufficient evidence for the government to proceed..."

Just what are you looking for?

You're right Rumpy -- we don't have anything as interesting as whether the elevators are working or not.

Well said Rumpy and David!

Longtime and careful readers of the justice building blog know it is the escalators that often fail in our humble building. Our elevators work just fine, and as blog readers know, they were recently refurbished, so the court workers who have been fired in budget cuts, can ride out of their jobs in style.
