172 / Court

Attorneys go to court. At least, many attorneys do. Not all of them. I have been an attorney since 1971, which is getting to be a long time. For most of my life, I've worked as an elected official, or have worked for one or another nonprofit environmental group. Next Tuesday will be the first time I will have been to court to argue in a contested litigation matter in over thirty-five years.

I have always thought that a law court isn't that much different from a tennis court. There are a number of somewhat complicated rules, and a clear field of play. The parties are the players. The Judge just calls the shots!
