DEMURRER DENIED OREGON vs WATERS

I appeared in court this morning(10-31-12) and waited for over an hour for 2 others cases to be taken care of. My Lawyer let his assistant go as my Lawyer thought he had it in the bag. When the judge started to question him about the laws being used for the case and if they had been shepherded my Lawyer started to studder and didn't know(the assistant knew). The judge then rendered his decision that the demurrer was denied. Now I have a court date of March 14th and 15th 2013. I'll keep you all posted as any updates come into being.

What does that mean?
Did your Lawyer blow it?

I went to two online law dictionaries, and find nothing about shepherd, or shepherding. Are you sure you heard that right?
Woof!

The term is Shepardize.

Shepard's Citations.
Me Gold Seeker

"Shepardize n. a method of locating reports of appeals decisions based on prior precedents from Shepard's Citations, books which list the volume and page number of published reports of every appeals court decision which cites a previously decided case or a statute. Shepard's exists for all sets of reports of appeals cases, and is updated every month with supplemental booklets. While it looks like a mathematician's book of tables, Shepard's Citations is an invaluable tool in finding appeals decisions which either follow, distinguish or deviate from prior case law."

Now I am by "any means of the word an attorney".  But would not Cowboy444's attorney have immediatley began with those cited cases supporting the fact that EPA/DEQ permitting is not relevant to dredging.
