I would take those unlimited sick days and schedule a bunch of doctors appointments. You never know what you may have that will later on become a pre existing condition. Go to the oncologist, dentist, ent, chiropractor etc.

Why doesn't it count towards YE?

But it does count towards next YE?

That's ridiculous

I totally don't understand the may to June thing. I see no reason and it must be a conspiracy , i.e. To identify who the good charactered people are who wouldn't take advantage of such a gap in metrics or something. I'm wary.

Just turn down projects or bomb the interviews

Anyone here have any ideas on how to handle sexism on the bench?

In every single hearing, opposing counsel interrupts me every time I address the court, and the judge not only allows it, he never allows me to get back to my point. He also likes to hold all of these hearings as off record status conferences. Any strategies to fight this?
