One of my clients, who I was assisting in court, has just texted to remind me to do my post about court from Monday.
So, I guess I start with security? Well the wee 16 year old was not on wave wand duty today and I didn't 'deep'. There was a guy on security who I know personally and I was tempted to poach him for my own business....hmmmm I may offer him a position next time.
Anyway, my client was in court room one and was seen right away, so I had some time to wonder round after wards.
Court room one, was Judge Brian Callaghan. Oh well, -now- this is the Family Court Judge who thinks what mothers tell him in court is gospel, isn't that right....and then later gets proven wrong. I have another post coming about him and his wife soon.....
I would be inclined to watch this Judge, he is 'soft' on sentencing. He reminds me of Santa Clause, even looks like him. He is to quiet too, court room one is a big room and it's hard to hear him. One defendant asked if he could move closer because he couldn't hear him. Emma Smith can give him a lesson in how to raise his voice.
I was not happy with his treatment of one defended who was self-represented.
Court room two, Judge Saunders...oh I like him. he was good and I was impressed with his behaviour in court. I would trust what he is doing and he seemed on the ball.
Court room three, was a registrar and I don't care much for them. They are like the jesters of the court room.
Court room four...well............ hello........the Judge who is responsible for letting me loose on Judges. AND who's children pay this blog a visit.
Judge Michael Crosbie- and might I say, you have packed on the pounds! Might I suggest taking up rowing like your sons, it could be a bonding session between father and sons.
I am in Wellington Court Thursday.
