People v. Lieng (Cal. Ct. App. - Dec. 14, 2010)

When I booted up this opinion, all that was in my field of vision was the right hand side of the caption.  Which said:  "Mendocino County Superior Ct. No. XXXXXX."

To which I immediately involuntarily said -- out loud, even -- "Marijuana case."

Then I scroll down to the first paragraph.  Yep.  "In these consolidated criminal appeals, appellant Richard Lieng appeals from his plea of no contest to one felony count of cultivation of marijuana . . . ."

Too funny.

I mean, I'm sure that Mendocino County has some other appellate cases other than marijuana busts.  I just can't think of any.  At all.

Sometimes the mind's initial impressions are spot on.  Good to know that 2011 isn't any different than 2010.
