If this was a Horatio Hornblower or Jack Aubrey/Stephen Maturin novel, this would be the point where the order would be given to beat to quarters. Translation: I have a client (probono) with a case and trial is on Monday.
Yeah, trial is on Monday.
On the good side, I have a sympathetic client. On the bad, there is this little problem that she has a problem with paying (this is an unlawful detainer) her rent, hence how she got into this situation. Now I just need to pull a jury together that will look beyond that.
After all the running around I did today, I am taking some time off tonight. Tomorrow, I will be a brief writing, legal researching, investigating maniac.
