judges

A Quote by Stephen Elias on lay, litigant, temple, mysteries, ceremonies, dark, complex, lawyers, judges, cabalistic rituals, pretrial, procedures, unfathomable, high priests, priests, and tactical significance

The lay litigant enters a temple of mysteries whose ceremonies are dark, complex and unfathomable. Pretrial procedures are the cabalistic rituals of the lawyers and judges who serve as priests and high priests. The layman knows nothing of their tactical significance. He knows only that his case remains in limbo while the priests and high priests chant their length and arcane pretrial rites.

I have two judges and two only; the ten year old inside who told me never to stop dreaming and the dying man who told me never to stop living.

A Quote by Jimmy Carter on law, justice, lawyers, judges, liberty, respect, and jimmy carter

“The law is not the private property of lawyers, nor is justice the exclusive province of judges and juries. In the final analysis, true justice is not a matter of courts and law books, but of a commitment in each of us to liberty and mutual respect.”

Jimmy Carter (1924 -)
