The answer is obviously to bring in a bunch of snake-eating gorillas.

Snakes in the courthouse? So a weekday, then?

Thanks for not telling us what kind of snakes, dumbassreporter.

Question:  Have all of them passed the bar, or are they there as observers?

I'm going to go with: Completely harmless garter snakes that people are freaking the fark out about because they're snakes.

That's my courthouse! :)

Barbara is a nice little old lady. Unless you screw up your filings.

I'd sooner piss off a Federal Judge than than the Clerk.

/lawyer, been in that basement many times.

Why are the clerks so scared of a few little snakes, when they deal with tort lawyers all day long?

FTFA: "They're waking up. They're coming out, they're looking for food. They're hungry"

What about that exactly about that statement is supposed to comfort "the ladies at the courthouse"?

Aw shucks, you guys are going to make me blush.


And for those who were asking, according to the AP's version of the story (I read that one first, but they cited to the link I submitted) they were DeKay's Brown Snakes, which are, you guessed it, less than a foot long and completely harmless.

Most likely.

Last spring while I was pet-sitting the cat apparently brought in a foot-long garter snake; I can't see how else it would have gotten in the basement and and came upstairs to the "office." All I know is the cat left the room, then a few minutes later the dog alerted me to the fact that the cat was now sitting behind my chair watching a snake curl itself up on the floor. It was alive and unharmed too, which surprised me: the dog is a harmless sweetheart but the cat can be a dick.

So I carried the snake out the back door; 10 minutes later the cat brought it back in and was watching it try to hide. So I put the snake out in the front yard where the cat didn't go because he's weird. What worried me was that the cat or the ferrets would hurt the snake, possibly leading to a dead snake making a stink in the wall, and anyway the snake was harmless to any living creature that's supposed to there; if it weren't for the risk of the pets hurting it and/or the homeowner objecting I'd have let the snake have the run of the place. Who needs (to quote Wikipedia) "slugs,earthworms, leeches, lizards, amphibians, ants, frog eggs, toads, and rodents" loose in the house? (Maybe a garter snake could get big enough to endanger a sleeping ferret, but I doubt they'd have let it live that long.)

I still wish I'd seen how the cat managed to carry the snake around without hurting it, and that I'd gotten a clip for Youtube.

Quality headline.

I once worked in a courthouse, and the cops were bringing a guy through the metal detector in handcuffs. His, well, very sizable trouser snake was attempting to salute through his pants, never did find out if he was in for a sex crime or not.

Nice one, subby.
