My friend Ray Ward has a post about some local lawyers who asked for a continuance of their jury trial because of the Saints game (which is being played in Chicago). Maybe I’m missing something, but that doesn’t seem like a motion that should have been filed. Supposedly, it was granted.
Update: the Wall St. Journal Law Blog has a post about this. I think it’s great that people (lawyers are people too) are excited about the Saints. I’m really excited, but I try to keep my professional obligations prioritized above my fan-mania. We all admire professional athletes who are disciplined and dedicated to winning, and ‘giving it their all.’ (Remember when Brett Favre played on Monday Night right after his father died?). Not everyone is as driven as Brett Farve, and apparently that’s true of the lawyers who asked for a continuance because of the Saints playoff game.
