I think they're starting to focus again on major institutions and their objectives, so I'm sort of watching that as it goes. I actually still defend a lot of law enforcement forces. I defend police officers and sheriffs a lot in their disciplinary matters and in 1983 cases, allegations of civil rights violations.
