I don't really have a plan...
OMG judges are funny. Secret code embedded in judicial opinion for Da Vinci Code case. I seem to be stealing all my news directly from dachelle these days. Sorry, dear! But I just had to post this one so I don't forget where it is.

I remember there's this one awesome awesome judge who writes absolutely hilarious opinions. In one of them he repremands the lawyers for being so dumb and implies that the briefs were written in crayon, and in another one he makes fun of the plaintiff (I think) for wanting to change venues. Was it...Judge Kent? I forget his name! He's totally cool though.

Hem. Studying. Right.

P.S. Look below, virginia_belle linked some of Judge Kent's opinions. I bet you will like them if you haven't seen them before. :)

...and they say 'sober as a judge'.

Yes, well. They also say that like, 80% of all lawyers are alcoholics, and some of those are judges...so at least in one way, there are probably a lot of un-sober judges out there. ;)

Which reminds me of my favorite quote by a judge:

"You say you were 'drunk as a lord'? As a class, they are quite sober."

Crazy judge! I would never have known who Jackie F. was otherwise, though. :)
