The Winter Meeting

Again this year as in '06, '07, '08, '09, and '11, I am in Williamsburg for the winter meeting of The Virginia Bar Association, and pleased to see many of my favorite people. This morning ends Pia Trigiani's year as president of the Association, and I was amused to meet her law partner David Mercer yesterday at the meeting of this committee, he is a hoot and a half.

The next president Hugh Fain told me he saw where I had blogged about the suit he filed for the Rick Perry campaign.

I saw the Chief Justice at the venue yesterday with her husband, and was reminded that she told me when I first met him years ago he was a much better-known local celebrity as a high school football coach than she was as a federal magistrate judge.
