The Right to Present Evidence Is Fundamental

The City of Bainbridge Island, Washington, enacted several burdensome zoning ordinances regulating property on its shoreline. A group of landowners on the island challenged those regulations as unlawful for several reasons, making claims under both state law and the U.S. Constitution.

The Forced Vacation

This past week was a time that I am not used to having – a week of quiet solitude.  Towards the end of January, I had been feeling rundown.  This is not unusual.  I love my work and it drives me to have about a 16 hour work day, give or take 6 days a week.  I enjoy going home […]

Adapt & Survive…Or Not

During the “Great Pandemic” of 2020 many people had to adapt their lifestyle to fit the requirements impossed upon them.  This same requirement was placed upon small business.  The COVID-19-related closure of tasting rooms at distilleries and bars, loss of tourism, and inability to offer in-store sampling slashed their sales revenue and cut them off from their customers. Then this week, just as […]
