Where's the Flow Chart?

As you all know, I will be vacating my office at the end of this year.

Actually, my last day at the Office will be December 24th, and then I will be headed for some much needed rest and relaxation in Florida with my Mom and my Little Boy.

Ever since I received notice of the fact that I wasn't going to be needed in the next Administration, I've been pretty anxious about finding out who my replacement in the court is going to be. I really need to talk to them.

The new Office "Flow Chart" was due on Monday. As of this writing, it still hasn't come out yet.

I've got some serious cases pending in my court, folks. I need to bring my successor up-to-speed and I need to do it before I leave. Just because I'm heading out the door doesn't mean that I don't still care about these cases.

My successor will get to handle the cases of:

Biondi Rolle and Company: Charged with the capital murder of a 9-month pregnant woman during a home invasion.

Patrick Esters and Marchristian Thomas: Charged with the capital murder of a taxi cab driver.

Clifford Gratton: Charged with the capital murder of two young men.

Theodore Rogers: Charged with Injury to a Child causing serious bodily injury to a newborn baby.

Adrian Hawkins: Charged with two counts of Aggravated Robbery that involved the stabbing of two women at Sharpstown Mall.

There is a lot of information that I need to share with my successor before I leave the Office, and for some reason Leitner and Lykos are dragging their heels on this deal. I honestly want to make sure that I give them every bit of information on my cases that I possibly can, before I leave.

I know that Lykos and the Gang That Couldn't Shoot Straight are busy planning her Prom, but really, they should be putting First Things First.

From what I hear, your replacement hasn't been hired yet.

Again it says something about you that you just don't say "screw it, it's not my problem."

Can't you just tutor the juniors in your court?

They know (like you do) that you'll help the new guy with the transition no matter when it is. They're just taking advantage of that, and they'll get some work out of you even when they leave.

Says a lot about both of you.

Memos to the file and keep copies for yourself. Visit with your successor and remind them about the cases after they are named. Sure, it won't be your job then, but you'll feel better doing it

I think Murray and Company (All ADAs and others (including Judges) out of a job due to this unfortunate situation (at the least!), have shown great humility and maturity in the way they have handled this situation. What I find is funny...imagine these newbies shi**ing their pants (including Judges!) at the prospect of doing what it's taken each of you years to do. Citizens of Harris did it.
