The PD's office here gives a month's paid leave for those of us who need to take the winter bar exam (I don't). Which is pretty awesome. Unfortunately, it also means people getting shuffled about to fill gaps.
Well, I shouldn't really say "unfortunately," although I am sad one of the fab four from my division is now going to be across the hallway in another courtroom for at least a month.
Also, as part of the various moves, I'm now in an office with a window. A window juuust wide enough for a desperate public defender to squeeze through. Oh - and my caseload is higher as well. Is someone trying to tell me something about my recent performance? And just who had this office before I did anyway?
More updates as we get them.
(PS - working in natural light can't be beat. Plus I have a nice view of the city and the canal.)
