The setting reminded me of the movie with Atty. Clarence Darrow up against the establishment and three time Presidential candidate,William Jennings Bryan, statesmen, orator, etc. The Bainter's attorney Mr. Joe Little (fits well into the scenario) being the sophisticated Country Lawyer dressed in a gray suit against seven or eight attorneys in black pin striped suits costing i'm sure millions of dollars. Atty. Little's wit and counter points were all highlighted or written down by the Judge.
After about three hours of testimony it was decided to schedule some more half days to finish up the rebuttal before the Judge will make his determination. The determination of the Constitutionality of North Lake Hospital Board to tax us with out ever putting it to a vote of the people.
Our Hospital Board members, Marilyn and Fran, need our support. I will notify you of the next meeting.
