Quotes

..."You know how it is here," he says, his tone turning apologetic. "With so much pressure from the outside, sometimes you need to find a way to immigrate, at least internally."
...including probate, custody, mortgage foreclosure, adoption, and real property," said Judge Anne E Lazarus, a member of VIP’s board of directors. "Their work has helped preserve our clients’ basic needs by preventing homelessness and stabilizing families. We are fortunate to have the attorneys of Willig, Williams, & Davidson as passionate and dedicated volunteers."
In a statement, Bali Governor Made Mangku Pastika said, "I appreciate the effort given by the East Bali Cashews team to create jobs and education at Ban Village. The government's efforts to make ‘Prosperity in Bali’ a reality can best succeed with the participation and support from the companies who have the spirit and awareness to promote Bali, through CSR program."
"… Judges have to be able to take these things.  There may be a point beyond which they should not have to lie down and put up with the slings and arrows, but there are other ways of dealing with it than this offence.  That is the reason it has fallen into desuetude: it is not necessary in modern conditions; not necessary for a sophisticated society, and not necessary for Judges who have to have the hardihood to put up with comments which sometimes may be unfair, badly based and just plain vulgar rudeness.  However, that is part of what of they have to do: they have to shrug their shoulders and get on with it."
