by John Hoff. Don't worry, it's just the burn pit on fire and the truck is
in front of it. Or is that the fiery end of the S.S. Jill Clark?
According to an order posted today on the Minnesota State Supreme Court website, the law license of attorney Jill Clark is hereby suspended. The court found Clark unable to competently represent clients in her current condition.
I will post the order later, but for now I'm just getting the news out as fast as I can. Go to the Supreme Court website if you need to read it before you allow yourself to start drinking and dancing.
This blog predicted the order would hit the website YESTERDAY. Turns out I was off by an entire day...
I will attempt to make more accurate predictions in the future.
The order also has a bunch of stuff in it about what a future filing by Jill Clark should look like, making reference to the correct fonts, etc., and citing the applicable rules. It's the sort of tedious and technical instruction the court might feel mercifully compelled to mention, for example, to a prisoner filing in forma pauperis while seeking release from a mental institution.
The order also mentions how Clark needs to send notifications to opposing counsel about her suspension. While normally not a fan of any form of "dead tree media," all the same I find myself somewhat hopeful the notification in question will arrive on attractive letterhead bond suitable for framing.
One regular reader of this blog suggested the following musical embed to commemorate this long awaited moment.
You know who you are and, yeah, right, THE IDEA DIDN'T COME FROM YOU.
So it is, after sixty installments, I find myself at the end of THE MADNESS OF JILL CLARK. And yet there is probably a lot to be written after this, so I'm looking for a good title to slap on the top of future blog posts.
