I read with relief and joy the Friday decision of the Supreme Court to dismiss the Texas suit to invalidate Biden’s win. I know the suit was doomed from its inception, but a person worries about these things (or at least I do).
I don’t have any lawyers in my immediate family, although my paternal grandfather had two uncles and a cousin who were lawyers and judges. I have always enjoyed court room dramas, and I sometimes enjoy doing expert witness testimony in real life. It is interesting to see the games and maneuvers that occur to settle things.
I suppose that Gregory Peck’s portrayal of Atticus Finch is the most wonderful exemplar of a good attorney. I have fortunately not needed much personal legal help aside from wills and such.
What are your favorite court room dramas? What are your experiences in court and with lawyers?
