Today was actually a quiet day, which meant I had better start working on my own file before things get crazy next week.
Being put in charge of a file in the middle of proceedings is horrible. It's not like starting a case, where everyone is on the same page and you know exactly what's going on in the file.
Starting in the middle means reading all the previous proceedings and trying to understand what's going on. And then having to go to court, probably some time next week, with a camera to take pictures of the documents that are in the court file and which I don't have.
Why a camera, you ask.
Because ordering a photocopy will cost you $3 per page. And you can't take the file away to photocopy documents yourself.
