Latin, the root of many languages I recollect being a required course in high school in my youth. Of course, I elected to study French, Spanish and a semester or two of Latin. My sister mastered Latin. At the time, I didn’t have the appreciation for foreign languages but felt they sounded pretty chipper.
However, in legalities Latin terms are tumultuous. Very depth-ridden. Scary. Kind of featuring a foreboding and thought there is MORE to come. . .
Recently, I was in court – pro se – in a 50C filing due to Cyberstalking, Stalking, and other crapoleigh and I won’t go into the gruesome details . . . the Defendant, of course, hired the local attorney with a million dollar win under his belt. He’s a slick, silver fox, type of bloke who reminds me of a ponzi scheme character.
My interlude at pro se was like Passion of the Christ and between the Defendant’s attorney and the judge I was lashed repeatedly for three hours while assistants and Defendant laughed as well as a young resident girlfriend in the courtroom.
It occurred to me – jurisprudence is lost and Latin, she’d just shudder if she knew what this system has done to her.
More to come . . .
