    • 2nd Cir. App. Court distinguishes “meritless” from “frivolous” in MetLife reorganization case.  (NYLawyer, Aug, 12, 2004).  If only everyone did. 



    • Guest columnist Dahlia Lithwick coined a useful term in today’s NYT — “re-activist judge.”  Law and politics:  It depends who’s Fox is being whored.



    • A must-read order from federal Judge Sam Sparks, comparing his job to kindergarten teacher (Texas Lawyer, Aug. 16, 2004):


      • “The Court simply wants to scream to these lawyers, ‘Get a life’ . . . ‘When is the last time you registered for anger management classes?'”

      • ‘[T]he Court will contemplate and may enter an order requiring the parties to obtain new counsel.'”

     no way out

of these mountains

   rolling thunder

 

 

 

       shimmering heat

a willow dips its branches

        into the steam

father and son 

same show, same laugh
