And that is opinion writing 101 on how a trial court can explain the experience so an appellate court can understand it

This baby girl who was blessed with this amazing forever family, is now a young little lady before me at the Supreme Court & sits with her sister to sing me a song. She probably has seen God’s blessings directly through her family’ decision to adopt. Its powerful

Almost ten years ago this young girl was blessed by God when Aaron & Karen Black provided her a forever family. I officiated the adoption. Today, I gave the oath of office as her father (one of my former law students) became a licensed attorney. /1

Fascinating. At our state’s intermediate court of appeals, the entire court reviews opinions of each panel before released. This prevents inconsistent decisions between panels

We both take some serious hits, however I rarely see a penalty flag after I am blindsided.

You realize how hard it is for the justices not to spend all our time writing down who is arguing what and then always asking the wrong counsel the wrong question to eat up the time with “I am not prepared on that issue” 🤦‍♀️

Interesting. We do not have anything similar. We do not take exhibits and our Bailiff calls and ends Court. I am certain our Clerk would love to pass the clock duties and calling the case ...

Yes, I have a different mug #1 that came with bobblehead...do I need to increase security at our building?

Do not tell anyone else in AR- but you have to subscribe to The Green Bag Law Journal to obtain items such as the mug & others displayed around my office... Not to mention the journal is essential legal wit

Big year for this young lady- she was brave enough to join my family and just passed the bar exam

Once I actually doubled ordered everything... even cleaning supplies... hubby was ok once I explained we needed to fill a local food pantry. . . He might or might not have accidentally thought that was my original intent by the time I finished my lawyer speech 😉

Here is what I tell new law clerks: “The goal is the best written product, not the best written product that was edited not to offend your colleague (justice)” Also, the best way to get great feedback and edits is to give them yourself.

I get this too! So many think if court isnt in session then judges arent working. If I suddenly have to cancel a dinner & work because an emergency motion is filed, I hear “but the courthouse isnt open” or my favorite “isn’t it a state holiday” 😬

Regarding case briefs and outlines: Its the process not the product that you are learning from. Do them yourselves. Do this and attend- you make As and Bs
