Hot and bothered at Equitable trial

Gumby

More excitement from the Equitable case. TS understands that the recent heat has been too much for the lawyers involved in the case, baking in their suits in Court 76 (where in a double whammy the air-conditioning had also failed). After discussions with the judge, the poor mites were allowed to move to a shirtsleeve order.

How sweet, TS thought, that they had to ask, and that they call it shirtsleeve order. Just like school.

Meanwhile, others are also finding the going tough. One contributor to The Motley Fool’s discussion group wrote recently, after patient relaying of the day’s events in court: ‘I have given up reading the transcript due to an attack of extreme boredom.’ A life in the law is not for everyone. It seems to be a trend.
