In and among other anniversaries, today is one too.
Two years ago today I officially became a litigant, an unwilling participant in an epic battle of egos between a student and his mentor. A power struggle that was born when student became boss and mentor became subordinate.
I am neither student nor mentor, boss nor subordinate. I'm just the booby prize.
I've been enjoined, I've endured electronic data discovery of proctological proportion, and I've had former co-workers who were also dear friends ripped from my social circle.
Mr. O and I will be cleaning up a financial mess for years to come. But I'll forevermore be able to correctly spell subpoena.
And now we finally have a trial date. That light at the end of the tunnel doesn't appear to be a freight train, either.
