Judgment at Agincourt

Last week Alex surprised me with tickets to Judgment at Agincourt, a mock trial presented by the Shakespeare Theater Company. Justice Ginsburg presided over the trial taken from the story of Henry V (you can read a synopsis here). Justice Alito and other appellate court judges joined Ruth, and the case was argued by some of the biggest lawyers in DC--including former Solicitor General Greg Garre and Assistant Attorney General Viet Dinh.

Pretty much it was amazing. The nerdy legal and current event jokes. The style of argument. The front and center seats we got because someone cancelled at the last minute. And of course, Ruth, my favorite justice ever.

This is why I love living in DC. And Alex. Only he would go out of his way to get these tickets and enjoy it as much as I did.
