We're packing our bags and hopping on an airplane and heading to distant climes for a major trial -- one that begins on Monday and will last perhaps a month.

A trial, for those not among the cognoscenti, is what happens when the plaintiffs' lawyers win the Daubert motions. It's this arcane procedure where the parties present their evidence to a body of citizens known as a jury, who then weigh it and attempt to render justice according to law.

Major trials being the distractions they are, there will be a hiatus in this weblog. For the next few weeks, updates to our parent site, Daubert on the Web, will also be on hold.

We'll miss our faithful readers, but we draw solace from the knowledge that the web is full of other diversions. Keep your RSS readers turned on and tuned in, because we will be back.
