The Law West of Chancery Lane
We have had a bit of fun with Judge Roy Bean whom I discovered to be a real historical figure. His dealings with the unruly Texans of the late nineteenth century were, shall we say, robust as well as occasionally venal.
But there's a Judge Bean sitting today on the High Court bench - to be exact, although sadly, his first name is David.
He has a hard act to follow.
