I am on the road on my way to court.
I have no business being anywhere other than bed.
That is all.
I hear that if you give the judge a disease then you automatically win!
An appealing thought, but I wouldn't want to face that judge later - they can be cranky about such things.
has anyone ever been found in contempt for passing the lower digestive track clap to the bench?
Doesn't that have to go through the bailiff? I'm not laughing at you, I hope I'm laughing with you...
Isn't there bad precedent for this kind of thing? I seem to remember a "falling asleep on the road" post...
Note use of the word "precedent"! 1L powers at work!
Thing is, when you have a court appearance scheduled, you're expected to show up. Darnedest thing.
They haven't taught us that yet. Maybe that's second year.
Oh, they won't teach you anything practical in law school - don't be silly!
(I'm only kidding a very little bit.)
Here's the best piece of advice I can give you for your first job: treat your secretary like a goddess. She is the one person who will actually help you figure out the ins and outs of actual practice without making you feel too much like a worm, but only if you treat her with respect. Pray to be assigned to the warhorse that's been at this for decades - she's much more useful than another beginner - and then say please and thank you and "would you mind...?".
consider yourself nagged,
just pick one, I'm sure you have quite a collecttion by now ;)
Judges are not sympathetic toward illness. And besides, my motion was granted and the case will finish, and everyone is happening.
I didn't; and I'm home - thank the maker.
