appeal goes to county court. takes about an hour or two, plus the time
spent on briefs which might be the better part of a day, with most of the
research work down by para legals. The girls would have lawyers crawling

lunatic would have had to have retained her own attorney, and no attorney
would have wanted to touch it.
