Went to court yesterday and today. It’s a very lucky week for me so far. I had 4 bankruptcy cases heard yesterday, and as of today, 3 of the 4 are done. Today, I won a trial. Two of my eviction cases resulted in kick-outs today also.
So things are really getting wrapped up! Just three more lingering hourly civil cases to either pass off or get co-counsel on, and my practice will be mostly ready to go into hibernation.
A funny thing happned today, actually. I was in the hallway outside Courtroom 22 in Ventura. Glenn Campbell and Tony Strauss saw me and we chatted for a while. They were both very encouraging to me, and Glenn even asked if he could do anything to help me out. I asked him if he’d take a multi-day jury trial for no pay. He told me that he’s already done plenty of those in his time.
So things are going well. I am scrambling to shut down the practice and prepare for my deployment to Iraq.
