“I Award You No Points, and May God Have Mercy on Your Soul.”

To my friends in the media: There’s a little trial over somebody’s damaged boat that may or may not start tomorrow in Judge Brown’s courtroom.

Heard it could be interesting.

A few points arising from the eve-of-trial Halmos motion linked to above: (1)  Could the process of consent to Magistrate jurisdiction truly be as depicted? (2)  What to make of trying a case — non jury — after presiding over a confidential mediation of same?

(3) “[F]lamboyant grammatical form” (page 17)?

What on earth is he talking about?

Like I said, should be interesting…..
