"Strenous" Advocacy

Somehow, I don't think this is what is meant by going to the matt for your client:
COMES NOW counsel for Defendant, through his [sic] and respectfully requests this [c]ourt to Order a fistfight between [] . . . and [Defendant's counsel]
This was actually filed in court, though was later (wisely?) withdrawn. Link via Anderson with more (and darker) info here.

In other law-type news, I received my license today. It's smaller than I imagined it would be...

Congratulations indeed.

I think the fistfight might be a really nice addition to binding arbitration; not to determine who wins, but for emotional "closure"

Of course, I think dueling should be legal....

Congrats, Pooh! Another milestone achieved.

I hope you're out celebrating and not reading my little comment.

Welcome to the fraternity, brother. Did you get licensed in AK?

In other news, I celebrated my contribution to the legal community today by getting empanelled in a civil jury. Should be interesting.

No sir, the great state of Minnesota! Ski-u-mah, my friends...

I'm guessing the jury box is really your first courtroom experience, J?
