I haven’t had an argument at the Georgia Court of Appeals in quite some time. It was good to be back. I won’t comment on the substance of a pending case before the Court. Instead, I’ll mention time management. My fifteen minutes went by quickly. And, as I tried to wrap up, there were additional questions. The Court gave me two additional minutes for rebuttal. And those minutes came in handy. If I had the argument to do over again, I would have stopped sooner than I did. I seldom do rebuttals. But this one was necessary.

I’ll close by recognizing opposing counsel for his professionalism to me throughout this case.
