About Me

I'm a lawyer primarily representing clients who are being sued. I am a retired Army Judge Advocate. Nothing I post here, including any comments about legal topics, should be construed as legal advice or creating an attorney-client relationship.

A very small bit of surprising good news on Covid.

Last week, a state court trial court judge in Pulaski County (Little Rock), Arkansas, entered a temporary restraining order (not a final decision) stopping enforcement of the Arkansas law prohibiting mask mandates in public schools pending a final hearing in a lawsuit challenging the law. The case will certainly ultimately be decided by the Arkansas Supreme Court where I would not hazard a prediction about the outcome.

That decision was surprising enough but my home town school district in south Arkansas has decided to institute a mask mandate on the strength of the TRO. Granted my home town is slightly pinker than most of the blood red state but I still find the decision surprisingly brave.

Maybe - just maybe - people are finally becoming concerned about the lives of our children.

I've got to tell someone and no one here really knows who I am, so "tag" DU is it.

I am the proud grandfather of the cutest, smartest two and a half year old in the history of humankind. I've just learned he is to be the big brother - of twins!

As of yet, I am forbidden to tell anyone, so keep it on the down-low.
