George Floyd’s murder: Not directly related to COVID, but do we know answers to any of these questions? 1. Chauvin and Floyd worked together at a nightclub. Does Chauvin have any personal motive behind the murder? Or even if so, maybe he won’t fess up since this might be viewed as 1st degree? 2. Chauvin had multiple complaints/reports against him. Do they mostly involve African-Americans? 3. Why did the Minneapolis PD not fire Chauvin after his involvement in 3 shootings and numerous complaints?

What do you miss about your job that can’t be done WFH? I miss 1) client and meetings with opposing counsel to discuss high-stakes transactions where everyone’s dressed to the nines and do “serious business”; 2) expensive lunches; 3) happy hours and 4) wearing my suits. None of that is coming back before 2021 (probably not only the meetings, but the transactions are going away too...) Glad I still have my job though.
