The office I work in handles a large bulk of the criminal appeals in Kansas, so, chances are, if you stick around long enough, you will eventually be involved in a case that makes a significant change in the law. Nonetheless, about, oh, once every few weeks, I find out one of my co-workers wrote a brief or argued in a case that's really important, and I turn into a little starstruck groupie.
"You mean [insert name of groundbreaking case] was you?!? Wow...."
Although no one is Johny-Cochran-famous, they're all kind of famous-to-me. I can only hope that someday I too will be a legal rock star.
For this week's poll:
Who is someone who is famous-to-you and why? Ever had a brush with someone famous in the more conventional sense? If you could meet one famous person (famous-famous or famous-to-you) who would it be?
Comment and discuss.
