Well I got ready for my deposition this morning the way I often do -- by rewatching Paul Williams' sensitive, nuanced portrayal of a badly misunderstood romantic in Phantom of the Paradise, then downing two shots of kettle-corn gin and heading to the office and just flat-out wingin' it.
I thought it went awesome.
God I love being a lawyer!
Then I realized it was bunker time, and that I would have to trudge through the Very Important Thoughts™ of the Robed Ones®, and my inner Paul Williams started to rise up again, hurt and betrayed by a tragic and senseless disfigurement, my only refuge to hide behind a (blog) mask and play clunky old synthesizers and type out this latest 3d DCA entry......
Wow, was that too much?
Anyways, let's go:
Trust Care Services v. AHCA:
Salter v. Cope in a battle of statutory interpretation!
For old times' sake, I'm going with Cope on this one.
Alvarado v. Bayshore Grove:
Hey this case involves Melanie Damian!
Wait a second, who the hail is Russell Landy?
Actually, this case is notable because Judge Schwartz references the "tipsy coachman":
Although the ground was not relied upon below, we invoke the “tipsy coachman” modernized as the “drunken cabbie” rule....With all respect, "drunken cabbie" is not even modern enough -- the kids nowadays call it "drunk texts from last night."
My work here is done.
