    Like many Americans, Jazz Hampton and two of his friends, Andre Creighton and Mychal Frelix, watched in horror as two fellow Minnesotans, Philando Castile and George Floyd, were killed by police officers following what seemed to be routine traffic stops.

Paperless law office--interesting

Terry Carter does a great job dissecting how to dive in to the paperless lawyer's world. Very solid info here. Our office "went paperless" as to our new files, and left all existing paper files as is. That way we didn't freak out. Svenson has really good advice on how to get started. Perfect lawyer topic.
