- I bet there were 20 or more inmates brought up to court to day. I bet that was over 1/2 the docket. - After docket, I reviewed a couple of DWI videos and along came this great exchange between a trooper and a passenger who may have been drunk. Trooper: "Did you know you that you have a salt shaker in your pocket." Guy: "Yeah." Trooper: "How do you explain that?" Guy: "I like salt." Trooper: "Fair enough." - Saw the judge chew out a couple of guys that had filed a lawsuit against Wise County regarding some kind of property dispute. I'm not certain, but based upon the hearing today it looks like the County had filed a Motion for Summary Judgment (loose translation: dismiss the case because it was without merit) and the pro se Plaintiff's didn't understand what was going on. The judge (maybe) could have granted the County's motion but he gave them a chance to hire a lawyer. Seems fair. If their case has merit, you'd hate to see it forever barred from prosecution because the guys didn't know what they were doing. And, trust me, they didn't know what they were doing.
