Do you have a right to a jury in a civil action in California Courts?
Here's a snapshot of some of the things that have been entertaining our staff while we WFH:
I've been watching the 10-part Michael Jordan documentary, The Last Dance, on ESPN. It gives a fascinating inside account of Jordan's career in the context of his last season with the Bulls. As a one-time Lakers fan (now Warriors), I was rooting against the Bulls this whole time, but appreciated how great Jordan was. I remember a lot of what they discuss in the documentary, so it has a nostalgic appeal as well. There are two one-hour episodes per week. - Aaron
The Long Riders is a gritty and powerful western. This movie follows the James and Younger brothers to the final end of Jessie James' killing. It casts brothers playing brothers, with the Quaids, Carradines and Keaches doing the honors. A nice historical look at some of the United States worst outlaw gangs after the Civil War. A little bloody and uber realistic (with Walter Hill directing, that’s a given), and best of all, a really cool fashion statement. - Richard
