Here's a suggestion I think would improve the system greatly, your honors. If you don't want to hear the argument I'm making, just say so, and don't hold the hearing. You save time, opposing counsel saves time, and I save time that my client is going to refuse to pay me for anyway after listening to you snark at me for a half-hour. Even more to the point, don't keep looking at me like I'm the one wasting everyone's time. I'm not the one who set the hearing; you are.
