In a few hours I will fly home to Atlanta after speaking at the American Association for Justice Interstate Trucking Litigation Group continuing legal education seminar.
The faculty at these national seminars form an invaluable nationwide network of knowledge, contacts and resources. If you are a lawyer seeking to handle any trucking cases for plaintiffs, I urge you to join the ITLG. Whenever I speak at these programs, I learn a great deal more from others than I can possibly teach them. While I learn something from almost every speaker, the faculty dinners may be the most valuable part of my participation.
Las Vegas — “Sin City” — has never been my cup of tea. But I can walk through that environment without finding it particularly tempting, and jog down Las Vegas Boulevard at dawn (as I did Saturday morning) while there are still plenty of people wandering in and out of casinos with drinks in their hands. It will be good to et home to Atlanta tonight.
