I will be frank in admitting that it was with the greatest misgivings that I accepted the assignment to make a study of the Henrico Trial Justice Court. The work laid out before me was in Virgin territory for, to the best of my knowledge, no study similar to that which I contemplated has been undertaken before. Thus, it was only natural for me to visualize the problems which would beset me, the unfamiliar legal terms which would puzzle one and the dreary court scenes which would leave me drunk with their monotony. Well, I came to the problems, saw them and conquered, I now call the legal terms by their first names, and as for the court room scenes, I am still sober.
