Evan, I'm sure glad you had "copyright concerns," otherwise, I'd be up all night reading these excerpts. Looks like "fair(ly comprehensive) use."


Very nice find, Evan, thank you.

FWIW, I've had a couple of cases before the quoted state district judge, Merrill Hartman of the 192nd District Court of Dallas County. He's as experienced and professional a judge as I've ever met, a straight shooter, and not prone to grade inflation.


Oh, and re multi-state practice: That would be a topic she'd be interested in, I'm sure, both because the Texas Bar was looking at it (unauthorized practice implications caused by the invasion of out-of-state megafirms opening big Texas branch offices in the 1990s) and because of her own firm's interests in out-of-state offices. There were protectionists mutterings, some who wanted to use the Bar and UPL committees to throw up entry barriers; ultimately came to nothing, though, at least for office practice lawyers who aren't filing court pleadings on a regular basis.
