Merrit had been in the cafe for two hours going over document files with one of the senior members of the wire. After his seizure had sent him to the hospital for a night and then three days under observation his father had given him a bunch of 'busy' cases. He hadn't been in the courtroom in over two months. Part of him actually liked the break, but another part of him hated being treated with kid gloves. "Okay, so, I'm looking to get the charges thrown out due to lack of evidence, but you have to be prepared for what may come... they're just shooting darts and you happened to get in the way. But from what we've gone over today I don't see that there's any connection to you and the charges." He shook his clients hand and the young man got up and headed out. Merr tapped his tablet and turned it off before lifting his coffee cup only to find it empty.
The lawyer got up and moved over to the counter, patiently waiting for someone. He figured it was probably shift change or something. He saw the girl who had been there early and gave her a small wave. "Just looking for a refill." He said, hoping she hadn't just gotten off work and now here he was bothering her, though seeing as she was the only one behind the counter... he didn't feel too bad.
