Our most memorable matter in South Carolina was the case we started in the Strom Thurmond Federal Courthouse and finished in the Matthew J. Perry, Jr. Courthouse. Judge Perry was a leading civil rights lawyer before Carter put him on the bench, and he was our trial judge. At one point, after sending the jury home for the day, we went up to the judge who was just beaming on the bench. We said, “You just love this, don’t you?” “By God, I do. This is just wonderful, isn’t it?” He’s the first person we’ve met who loves trying cases more than we do, and working before him was sheer joy.
