I Hate Being My Own Private Investigator
I spent 3+ hours yesterday sitting in a courtroom waiting just to observe a case which effects the case of one of my clients. It was in a courthouse I don't usually go to and the judge there was slooooooooww. I had hoped to be there for only 30 minutes or so but I didn't get out until 6 p.m. (and then had to drive a hour back). Meanwhile, paperwork sits in my office undone, briefs sit unwritten, and client calls go unanswered.
In the end the guy who's case I came to see didn't show. An afternoon wasted.
