1 p.m. 52A02-1309-CR-808. Lake County Government Complex Auditorium. On August 25, 2012, animal control officers in Miami County received a report that two dogs owned by Maddox Macy bit one of Macy’s neighbors.  The next morning, Officer Roger Bowland accompanied two animal control officers to Macy’s residence.  Macy was uncooperative.  Despite being asked to calm down, Macy was loud and demanded answers from the officers.  Officer Bowland threatened to arrest Macy if she did not calm down.
Officer Bowland then walked across the street to the bite victim’s house.  Macy followed down the sidewalk and began “making a scene.”  Officer Bowland arrested Macy and placed her in the front seat of his police car.  Macy opened the door of the car and continued to yell.  Officer Bowland forced Macy back into the car, but Macy refused to put her feet inside the door.  Officer Bowland had to pick up Macy’s feet and place them inside the car. Macy was convicted of disorderly conduct and resisting law enforcement.  Macy appeals her conviction for resisting law enforcement, arguing she did not forcibly resist.

  1. "associates are becoming more mercenary. The path to partnership has become longer and more difficult so they are chasing short-term gains like high compensation." GOOD FOR THEM! HELL THERE OUGHT TO BE A UNION!

  2. Let's be honest. A glut of lawyers out there, because law schools have overproduced them. Law schools dont care, and big law loves it. So the firms can afford to underpay them. Typical capitalist situation. Wages have grown slowly for entry level lawyers the past 25 years it seems. Just like the rest of our economy. Might as well become a welder. Oh and the big money is mostly reserved for those who can log huge hours and will cut corners to get things handled. More capitalist joy. So the answer coming from the experts is to "capitalize" more competition from nonlawyers, and robots. ie "expert systems." One even hears talk of "offshoring" some legal work. thus undercutting the workers even more. And they wonder why people have been pulling for Bernie and Trump. Hello fools, it's not just the "working class" it's the overly educated suffering too.

  3. And with a whimpering hissy fit the charade came to an end ... http://baltimore.cbslocal.com/2016/07/27/all-charges-dropped-against-all-remaining-officers-in-freddie-gray-case/ WHISTLEBLOWERS are needed more than ever in a time such as this ... when politics trump justice and emotions trump reason. Blue Lives Matter.

  4. "pedigree"? I never knew that in order to become a successful or, for that matter, a talented attorney, one needs to have come from good stock. What should raise eyebrows even more than the starting associates' pay at this firm (and ones like it) is the belief systems they subscribe to re who is and isn't "fit" to practice law with them. Incredible the arrogance that exists throughout the practice of law in this country, especially at firms like this one.

  5. Finally, an official that realizes that reducing the risks involved in the indulgence in illicit drug use is a great way to INCREASE the problem. What's next for these idiot 'proponents' of needle exchange programs? Give drunk drivers booze? Give grossly obese people coupons for free junk food?
