Thank you to a loyal reader from the NEK for tipping me off to the court order that inspires this column.
It’s been a week since the eclipse. I doubt that it kept many Vermont lawyers from the office – at least not any more than “August” seems to. In any event, the courts remained open for business and will be open for business when the next eclipse occurs on Monday, April 8, 2024.
Of course, next time, Northern Vermont will be in the totality zone. So, if you don’t want a pesky court appearance to keep you from a viewing party, come up with a plan well in advance. Otherwise, if this decision is any indication, a motion to continue will not succeed.
