Last Tango in Frankenmuth

Today ended what is probably my last Appellate Specialists Conference...up in Frankenmuth, Michigan.

It's been a yearly tradition for as long as I've been a prosecutor: the state's best and brighest appellate lawyers coming together to share ideas and camaradarie. had been developing as a tradition...the Wayne County Brain Trust---with the addition now of Dave McCreedy and Lori Palmer, two of the bright younger attorneys who'll be taking our places, along with various spouses and other relatives---got together on our last night for a rousing game of some sort. This year, as often in the past, it was "Catch-phrase," played while bemoaning the fate of the Tigers in the post-season baseball playoffs.

I'll miss it...and may try to stop by at future conferences. does move on. And with a new house and new responsibilities...who knows?

JEFFREY CAMINSKY, a veteran public prosecutor in Detroit, Michigan, specializes in the appellate practice of criminal law and writes on a wide range of topics. His books include the science fiction adventure novel The Star Dancers, the exciting second volume in the Guardians of Peace-tm series, The Sonnets of William Shakespeare, and the acclaimed Referee’s Survival Guide, a book on soccer officiating. All are published by New Alexandria Press, and are available on Amazon, as well as directly from the publisher.
