Lawyer artfully asks for honeymoon continuance

May 9th, 2011 · No Comments · Criminal Law, attorneys

A Newport News criminal defense attorney put his language arts skills to work in seeking relief from a court date in conflict with his planned honeymoon.

Chad Dorsk was appointed to a heroin distribution case in federal court after another attorney withdrew, according to a crime news compilation from the Daily Press. He agreed to take the case before realizing he was already set to be on his honeymoon the day of the trial.

“In support of this motion, the Defendant’s counsel represents to the Court that the undersigned is getting married on May 28, 2011, and has planned a honeymoon thereafter,” Dorsk wrote. “In order to preserve and ensure a future of marital harmony and bliss Counsel respectfully requests that this continuance be granted.”

U.S. District Judge Robert G. Doumar was scheduled to rule on the motion, but never got a chance to have his say on the couple’s future. The trial was canceled after the defendant decided to plead guilty.
