No Such Thing as a Home Game?

Last fall, the Chicago Bears announced that the team signed a purchase agreement for Arlington Park, a suburb about 30 miles northwest of the Windy City. The team had been trying to renegotiate its lease with the city for their longtime home at Soldier Field, which expires in 2033. If the two sides can’t agree […]

Crime Ring

My buddies and I began playing softball in the Kimberly Recreation Association in 1992. Sponsored by our office, the Legal Eagles were considered the Atlanta Braves of the KRA – while we made multiple appearances in the championship game during the 1990s, we were only able to come away with one title in 1995. Despite […]

Elf on Ice

As I mentioned a few weeks ago, most judge’s decisions are relatively dry. But once again, a judge’s recent ruling is anything but boring. Judge Robert Leonard issued a holding last month to help parents during the busy, stressful holiday season. Leonard, Superior Court Judge for Cobb County, Georgia, which is located about 20 miles […]

While this seems like an unprecedented move, it is certainly not the first time the number of justices on the Supreme Court fluctuated. While many people assume the number of justices […]

It’s a Numbers Game

As I’m writing this article, the Brewers are currently tied for first place in their division with the Cincinnati Reds. I’m trying not to get my hopes up because it’s only April, but as they say on TV, if the season were to end today, we’d be in the playoffs. On opening day, the Brewers, […]

A Little Help

As I previously mentioned, despite being very careful, our family got hit with COVID. While I still have a lingering cough, we came out of everything pretty unscathed. Unfortunately, not everyone was as lucky as us. Over 30 million Americans have been infected with COVID so far, and millions of them have lingering health issues, […]

Happy Thanksgiving from McCarty Law!

The leaves have fallen, the temperature has dropped, and the days have grown short. It is once again Thanksgiving. We know that this year’s Thanksgiving is going to look a lot different than years past. We now need to think about things like social distancing, face masks, and hand sanitizer. This year’s holidays also present […]

What to Wear?

After an almost week-long wait to see who won the Presidential election, we finally have a decision. Maybe. While not everyone may be pleased with the outcome, I hope we can all agree that it’s nice to have the election behind us. Or at least the campaign ads! Record numbers of voters turned out to […]
