Thanks for your patience. My little talk I think went well (a short talk on chain of title and securitization fail is actually harder than a long talk) and as the only non-attorney presenting, I of course overprepared too. But I got to meet Judge Rakoff, which was totally cool, and sat where judges normally sit in what is usually a big ceremonial courtroom but is currently being used by appellate judges (in fact, I’d watched a hearing not that long ago in the very same room). But the result is I’m even more behind than usual, although I may be able to get more or less caught up later today.
