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.
