"I want the firetrucks out there!"

I've been watching the Anna Nicole Smith hearing. It seems like Judge Seidlin is one of the few members of the judiciary who is brave enough to shake off the chains of civil procedure and courtroom propriety and just go with with his heart. Or is this just how it goes down in Florida?

I'm tempted to make snide comments, but I don't actually know what is supposed to go on in a hearing like this. The only measuring stick I have is what Judge Seidlin says would normally happen at this point - and I'm not sure he is a reliable source. Can anyone clue me in - or direct me to a good source for info - about the normal procedure of a hearing like this (I don't even know what it is called). Also, who are all these lawyers in the courtroom?

Anyone else notice that unusually good looking woman under the white phone?

I only watched like 30 seconds of it, and was disgusted. It was only about one step above Judge Judy.

He's sent an audition tape to TV execs. You can't make this stuff up. But more importantly, what's the moneyline that the Big Rakowsky drafts an exam around ANS's will and HKS's stupidity?

Seidlin does sound and look a lot like Sheindlin. I'm just saying.

The solution is almost, well, Biblical.
At least they can bury her now.

On a completely unrelated topic, I wasn't able to attend the first presentation about the new building plans and won't be able to attend the next. Any chance one of our esteemed bloggers might liveblog the upcoming one or at least report on it? Thanks in advance!

The judge "sobbed" (see CNN) when he announced his verdict. Sobbed? My god that is just sad (and not in the "sob" way, in the lame way). This whole thing is just a joke.

But I must admit I like the thread! We can't deny that we're all interested!

I vigorously deny any interest.
