Race for Justice

When can a local lawyer beat a sitting Virginia judge and NOT be cited for “contempt” ?

At the First Annual “Race for Justice” held at the Tysons Sport & Health Club this morning.  Several hundred Northern Virginia lawyers, judges, legal staff and family members turned out for this inaugural event, which raised money for the Fairfax Bar Foundation, which has pro bono legal assistance programs.  Many members of the Fairfax Bar Association came to run, walk and volunteer, as did members of the bench and Bar of Alexandria.

While it was hot and humid, the rain held and the competitors raced over the hilly 5km course.  Doug Landau had won the Sport & Health 5km for the National Orthopedic Hospital on this same course 2 years ago, but could only muster 7 minute miles, which is not fast enough to get into the top finishers.  The Herndon Reston injury lawyer then went on a nearly 50 mile bike ride past Leesburg before taking in his daughter’s soccer match in Loudoun County.  So it was a typical sports-filled weekend for the ABRAMS LANDAU TriathlonTrialLawyer, who also managed to squeeze in some gardening  before hitting the sack.
