    Courtly Matters

    Well, we had court on the 5th, to testify for the prosecution, but there was a snafu with the law.

    Something about an edit to a law pertaining to the case, where the lawyers aren't sure if the edit was actually applied to the law or not. They rescheduled the hearing until they find out if anything happened to the law or not.

    But there was a funny little highlight to the event, that made the waiting time worth it, even though nothing else productive happened.

    As they were discussing the recent snafu, the judge looked at the lawyers and said something along the lines of 'Surely you aren't suggesting that the Missouri legislature is confused?' Ten they ALL laughed.

    LAUGHED!

    Now I don't know about you, but I've never seen a lawyer laugh while at work, nor have I seen a judge laugh while on the bench. I've seen a judge hold in a chuckle before, but never actually laugh. And to see the judge, prosecutor, and defense attorneys all laugh over a shared joke was simply priceless.

    Our new court day is in June, and I await the arrival of our new pieces of green paper demanding our presence. (subpoenas)

    Until later -
