I have been engaged all week in a trial that has been so entertaining I should have probably been required to pay admission. I plan to post on the highlights--and they are legion--but I will start with a vignette from a matter occuring before my trial started.

Counsel asked for a trial continuance on the ground that his expert had "uncontrollable hiccups."

The court was not amused. Continuance denied.
