In trying to fully understand how the various branches of Oldham County government function, I’ve gone to court; specifically Oldham County Circuit Court.
During my first visit, there were two lawyers, Judge Karen Conrad and me. The lawyers sat and discussed motions, subpoenas, “special masters” and various legal issues in voices both calm and passionate. The judge asked thoughtful questions and made some decisions over the course of about an hour. The whole process reminded me of a chess match.
