Judges

Judges are frequently the objects of people’s frustrations. I for one am deeply disturbed whenever those black-robed civil servants fail to appreciate my persuasive exertion on behalf of my client. Sure, they serve a crucial role in our society by resolving otherwise irresolvable disputes. Sure, the fact that they aren’t elected is key to promoting the impartiality of their decisions. Sure, they work with minimal staff, with angry litigants and mind-boggling complexities. But just who do they think they are? I submit that they are hard-working, fallible but very bright people, who often are a source of annoyance for me, but who deserve the gratitude of everyone who subscribes to the notion that we should be a nation of laws not men.
