Ah, sweet justice. Or something like that! Yesterday, I was subpoenaed to be a witness in a court trial for an accident that I was involved in. I had to be at the court house at 1:15pm in order to not be in contempt of court. Long story short--they kept moving the case back, and finally at 6:35, 11 cases later, they called the case. Then, there was a short recess, and the case was settled without going to trial. They just looked at me and said, "You're free to go." After sitting there all that time, that was it. Kind of ridiculous. They are giving me $18 for my time. I'm not even sure why they give a stipend! Anyway, I've enough court proceedings and trials than I ever want to see again!
