    1. This is getting old "Blog is dead!" I find it useful and often catch tidbits that I missed. If it is "dead" then why bother posting. Sounds like the same person who keeps saying "Blog is dead."

    2. The reason I know you're lying is because 15 minutes is WAY too optimistic.

    3. She made it to ground floor on one of the staff elevators. She was apprehended by a Marshal before it was announced that she was missing from the courtroom. Apparently, another inmate distracted the CO while she ninja'd out the door into back hallway. She then accessed the staff elevator. I'm only curious if any RJC employees got on the elevator with her and couldn't figure out the lady in blue wearing belly chains was an escaping inmate. For someone who was there for fairly minor charges, she bought a lot of unintended time in custody and new charges.

    4. And the first thing she wanted was a cigarette! It was way too early for her to run into anyone important.

  4. Just read the NY Times article. Good press for Nevada trusts. Too bad our business entities are getting so much bad press because of the stupid commerce tax nonsense.

    1. It was good to see the article favor Nevada trusts over Delaware trusts. It looks like this seals that battle.

    2. The article was in today's Las Vegas Sun too.

  5. Been on hold for Justice Court Clerk's office for over an hour. Then you can leave a message for a clerk, who does not call you back. Note to self, just go to clerk's office.

    1. It is beyond ridiculous that the JC has set up a phone system that never, ever, ever gives you a human to speak to, and forces you to listen to hours of endless recorded messages that never lead you to a human. I think it as a serious, serious breach of public access to the courts.

  6. "Trail begins for School District officer charged with excessive force."

    What kind of trail are we talking about here? The Oregon trail?
