Least Productive Day Of The Year?

Some people claim that today and tomorrow are some of the least productive business days of the year due to the start of the NCAA basketball tournament. What do you think? Is there a less productive day where people are actually in the office, but work isn't getting done? Does your office have a viewing party? Anything else going on out there we should know about? Any secret ADKT orders or OBC actions?

Investigator, Esq.

This article about the "mutual" parting of ways for the City of Henderson and the assistant city manager mentions that the City paid Littler Mendelson almost $11,000 to investigate claims of sexual harassment. This got us wondering how many of you perform investigative services as part of your law practice. We know many of you hire investigators, but do any of you do it yourself? Any recommendations or tips related to this part of the practice of law?
