Kentucky Court Watchers Rejoice -- Tell-All Book Now Available

KY Judge Anybody can read "The Brethren" or "The Nine" and call himself a court aficionado.

But if you're really hardcore -- and/or live and practice law in Kentucky -- you should get your hands on a copy of "Secrets of the Ky. Supreme Court" by retired Justice Donald Wintersheimer. The book appears to have been self-published. I can't find any reference to it anywhere on the Web with the exception of the linked review on But that review (written by retired Ky. District Court Judge Stan Billingsley, who, incidentally, owns LawReader) makes it sound like a real humdinger:

We particularly enjoyed one story about [the late] Justice [Charles M.] Leibson who was walking near the  Juniper Hills Golf Course in Frankfort, and found an apparently abandoned golf ball which he retrieved. He was quickly approached by  some angry golfers and returned their ball to them before quickly exiting the area.

I don't know -- revealing "secrets" like that could get a retired Justice in some hot water.

If you want to buy a copy ($25), contact Adams Avenue Books, 224 Adams Ave.,Covington, Ky. 41014, (859) 581-8781. Or just send me the $25 and I'll tell you a story about when I drove the green on a par-3 hole then proceeded to five-putt, resulting in my having to chug three beers.
