Epiphanies & Insights on ADR for New Lawyers
Sheri Stewart
Jun 29, 2020

Hon. Kevin S. Burke
Jun 29, 2020
You can find flash bulbs for vintage cameras on eBay, but no journalists use them. Indeed, reporters may be of an age where they do not know what flash bulbs or photo film were for. Gone, too, are the bulky television cameras that—if used in a courtroom—inherently would cause a distraction. Very few newspapers have a sketch artist on staff and none of the Minnesota papers do.
