The JPML Has Been Listening to the Hold Steady a Lot or Maybe They Just Want to Visit the Mall of America
...because they'll be next sitting [PDF] in the very fancy ceremonial courtroom in which I clerked in the District of Minnesota. Minnesota is lovely in the summer if you can avoid being carried off by mosquitoes.
The only tort-related item of interest on their agenda:
MDL-1856 -- In re Depo-Provera Products Liability Litigation
And that's it in terms of clearly tort-related items. There are some marketing items that might be related to tort cases - not sure - but overall, it seems like they're really trying to get out early.
What might they be heading to? Some thoughts:
- First Avenue has "Ritmo Caliente" night in the main room with Latin dancing and two-for-one drink specials. The night before, Steel Pulse is playing the main room, so maybe the panel is just expecting to be tired for the day of hearings.
- The Mounds View Community Theatre will be finishing up its run of Oklahoma! at the Irondale Theater. (By coincidence, one of my favorite Twin Cities bands, Arcwelder, created a font called Irondale. Arcwelder, however, is not playing, either during the panel's visit or in the pit orchestra for Oklahoma!)
- The St. Paul Saints, which provides just about the most fun you can have watching minor league baseball, will be playing the Sioux City Explorers.
I hope the panel enjoys all that the Cities have to offer.
