Week 1

The first week of trial is under our belts and, save the cross-exam of our damages witness and a short appearance from the accountant, our case is in. I don't think we made any mistakes and I know we have all the evidence we need to make our argument to the jury. The case involves a dispute over a contract and the damages amount in slightly north of $1 million. I like our chances, but, as litigators well know, juries can be very fickle. With any luck, we'll have a verdict by next Friday. At that point, I'll take some time off to celebrate the holidays, which I missed out on this year, and, well, just sleep for a bit. Hope all is well out in the blogosphere -- I've hardly even had time to check in with Lileks this week. Now that's busy.
