That’s English poet Richard Lovelace (1617 – 1657), best known for his “Stone walls do not a prison make, Nor iron bars a cage.” And today Judge Nega recalls the spirit, if not the letter, of Lovelace’s poesy, in Estate of Roger D. Murphey, Jr., Deceased, Roger D. Murphey, Sr., Administrator, Docket No. 15231-14S, filed 5/18/18.

Sr. has a melancholy task, and it isn’t lightened by the fact that he is behind the stone walls and iron bars aforesaid.

Judge Nega is sympathetic, but the docket must move on.

“While the Court understands that the incarceration of Mr. Murphey imposes some limitations on the parties, we encourage Mr. Murphey to work cooperatively with respondent’s counsel to narrow or resolve the issues in this case under the Court’s rules and procedures.” Order, at p. 1.

Takeaway- Practitioner, remember Lovelace’s classic if your client is thus situated.
