[No audio for this newsletter due to technical difficulties.] At the first hearing before the special master in the Mar-a-Lago search case, Judge Raymond Dearie reeled in the errant proceeding from Alice’s Wonderland and landed it on the terra firma of federal court.

In other words, everyone should take a deep breath and relax (a bit). The rule of law still applies in some courtrooms in America.
