Excerpt from short story Have Gavel, Will Travel
The day of Ferdinand Pitt's arrest began with an unsuspecting Ferdinand smiling broadly, his finger firmly pressed on the elevator button. As the elevator ascended, Ferdinand thought of the lucky turn his career had taken since joining the Judge's Company five months ago. With full retirement benefits in tow, nearly a hundred grand per year - he left the bench to become a judge for hire, a rent-a-judge, a gunslinger of the 21st Century, hired by plaintiffs and defendants alike to bring justice to a world where courts had come to a screeching halt, impotent to the onslaught of litigation run amuck.
