EPISODE OUTLINES 2021
Outlines from episodes recorded in 2021
It is hard to believe that we now begin year 3 of that Good Judge-Ment Podcast! There is a separate page for outlines recorded in each year. We organize them by date recorded and not date published. These are just our rough notes so please forgive typos, etc. NOTE: The COVID-19 pandemic struck in March 2020 (and has continued through the first part of 2021) which changed our recording schedule (and life as we had known it). During the pandemic, we recorded COVID-specific episodes and they are listed by the date of recording-continuing in 2021.

No outline for this episode recorded on 3/7/2021 with FOP-Hon. Keith Wood. The discussion was focused on the complicated world of Weapons Carry Licenses and how the Probate Court handles the entire application and renewal process associated with this important issue. Sorry there is no outline-we just picked Keith's brain.
ATTORNEY FEES IN DOMESTIC RELATIONS CASES
So...years ago we recorded an episode on attorney fees awards in general and teased that we would also be offering a separate episode dealing with awarding attorney fees in domestic relations cases. We both thought we had recorded that episode back when we teased it but...we didn't. This is that long-awaited episode. Recorded (finally) 3/15/2021.
