In reading the motion to quash, the attorney failed to take into account that Friday is "Good Friday" and Monday is "Easter Monday", both recognizable holidays, so his count would appear to be off by a further 2 days.

I don't think those are national holiday. They are religious holidays and presumably do not count.

Whatever they're paying... they're paying too much.

Ah, I didn't think about that. Living here in the South, they seem to have been religated to the level of national holiday, so it made me wonder. Also, since the congress is out because of Easter, made me think it was. Oh well. Thaks for the correction.
