Heat closes Spotsy courts early
Spotsylvania officials just announced that they closed the General District and Juvenile and Domestic Relations courts early today because of problems with the air conditioning. As of 12:30 p.m., it was cases closed for the day.
That news, of course, opens the door for all sorts of writing options. There’s the “crime takes a holiday” option. If court had continued operating in today’s hot, humid conditions, one could surmise an attorney might have leveled an accusation of ”cruel and unusual punishment.”
But, note that I resisted the temptation to veer off into any of those directions. I’m playing it straight. You, however, are welcome to offer your take on the situation. But, only do it if you can take the heat for what you post.
