The Pitter Patter of Little Litigator Feet: Florida Courthouse Overrun With Mice

ja-palmbeach4250px-d0bcd18bd188d18c_2There appears to be no professional courtesy between counsel and rodents at the Palm Beach County Courthouse. The court is overrun with mice that are falling from the ceilings and running across the floor during trials.

Mice have been appearing in briefcases and purses, forcing many to check before leaving the courthouse to avoid surprises in their cars or homes.

Of course, it is not only the law that attracts such little livestock. I recently took my oldest son Benjamin to the NBC studios only to have two mice run around him. When he reported two separate sightings, there was some uncertainty until the next night, a woman almost sat on one of the mice in the green room.

The Palm Beach mice interrupted a burglary trial and have caused staffers to run shrieking from offices.

Exterminators have been called with little hope for habeas corpus relief for the little litigators.

  1. “Unless you count “spoiled” as an illness.”

    Naw, spoiled is pretty much the natural state of a cat/human relationship. But maybe I’m just brainwashed by my two cats, Tweetypie and Damnitkitty. Their names are interchangeable. More precious than gold for sure. 😉

  2. lotta,

    No, my kitty’s transgression was enough to merit a mild swat but he is fine. Unless you count “spoiled” as an illness. That half-gallon of milk is a total loss though. They are really good pets and excellent companionship 99.9% of the time. I wouldn’t trade this one for all the gold in the world.
