After John Gerrard took my spot as the active district judge in Lincoln, I followed tradition and moved out of the fancy chambers I had used for the previous 18 years. I decided to use the “visiting judge’s” chambers adjacent to the courtroom that Magistrate Judge Zwart and I share. My “new” chambers are perfectly serviceable, although I kid about the absence of an Article III bathroom.*
I thought perhaps you might be interested in seeing where I hang out with my two career law clerks (Jan and Jim) and my assistant (Kris). If so, and with apologies for the grainy quality of the clip, have a look at the one minute video below.**
**I was reminded by Gabi that this video may annoy the hyper sensitive judicial security people with the United States Marshals Service. Since my nose sprays blood constantly and, despite earlier lies to the contrary, I do suffer from Ebola, they need not be concerned. No self-respecting terrorist from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant wants to die hemorrhaging blood from his anus after contracting Ebola from a Kafir (Arabic: كافر kāfir) who especially loves bacon. I am perfectly safe.
