I do not currently have an active practice in the United States.
Should a project come along within those boarders which interests
me, that might change. I do not foresee that happening however.
I presumed that --it's a plus! I never did, and never will.
the research and the smell of blood (if channeled to real
justice) is immensely satisfying --it is the members of the
American club, and the intendent body trading which turns my
stomach --that, and 'kill' based compensation.
the difference in civil v. common law origined justice is not
to put it another way: in criminal procedings: I would rather
be considered guilty, until proven innocent; than I would be
presumed innocent, until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
a nation whch can base a conviction on conspiracy to commit a
crime, or permits circumstantial evidence to close the gap towards
'beyond a reasonable doubt,' has lost any pretense of understand-
ing the heritage of common law: the Magna Carta.
Of course the US Constitution isn't perfect;
but it's a whole lot better than what we have now.
