Yeah, OK. I have to admit it. I said The Oaf should be a no-show at John Hoge’s Maryland trial before Judge Hecker today. And he didn’t show. Wow. We get results, I guess.
But in my haste to provide a gratuitous recommendation1 yesterday, I, err… forgot to add something. Forgot… yep, that’s the ticket. Something that, in the light of 20-20 hindsight, was really important. Really, really important, and especially now in light of Our Oaf not showing.
I should have added, but didn’t, that Bill would have been wise to shell out the grand or so that it would have cost to have a lawyer enter an appearance at trial this morning and put the Absent Adversary’s objection to the proceedings in the record. But, as I said, I, err, um… forgot.
So he wasn’t there and, being Our Oaf, couldn’t restrain himself from frothing at the keyboard about the situation [safe link here].
Well, he promised us an ADA lawsuit. And I have to give him props for getting it filed, yessiree, right away in Twitter Court this morning. So we’ll see.
And what is going to happen in Maryland? Well, I imagine it going down something like this.
We can dream big dreams, can’t we?
1 Note that I said “a gratuitous recommendation,” not “gratuitous legal advice.” And it wasn’t a recommendation to The Oaf, either. It was commentary in the form of parody. I had no expectation that Bill Schmalfeldt would read what I said much less act on it.
