Kenneth P. Nolan’s “Sidebar” column in Litigation journal is a “must read” column for me, so I am thrilled that he agreed to be guest columnist in our continuing series “Celebrating Atticus Finch.” I’ll see you for the Book Review on the following page.
—Hon. Mark A. Drummond
Cleveland, I thought, was just like my beloved Brooklyn. Tough, shabby, and packed with working-class mugs who loved their sports. The Browns and Indians were just as horrible as my pathetic Mets and Jets. So, when my injury case was multidistricted to Cleveland federal court, I dismissed the suggestion of hiring local counsel. What for? These Clevelanders are my people. I grew up with them; I talk their language; they’ll love me. This was when I was young and invincible.
