Even Lawyers Have Standards

Romanian authorities are facing a legal challenge from some of the country's top lawyers over courtrooms they say smell like stables.

The lawyers' bar in Iasi in eastern Romania city is demanding 1 million from the state for what they claim are the "humiliating" conditions they work in, local daily Adevarul reported.

Lawyer Mariana Bazdara, who is representing 600 lawyers in Iasi, said that she and her colleagues had had enough of the "pestilential smell in court rooms that look like either cellars or stables and have no fresh air flowing into them".

--Um, have they seen or smelled the City/County Building in Indianapolis? We might give them a run for their money.

You Said

The big courtrooms LOOK okay. Some of those smaller ones on the other hand...

I've only been in a courtroom once in my entire life. It was, in fact, at the City/County Building. I don't recall the smell, though. I just remember it striking me as your typical late 50s/early 60s city government building...kinda dated, kinda bland.

Oh yeah, I was no on trial, by the way! :-p
