Thanks to the Ninth Circuit, it's nearly time for me to skedaddle to Seattle: Late next week, I am scheduled to make my first Ninth Circuit oral argument, before a three-judge panel consisting of Senior Circuit Judge Andrew J. Kleinfeld and Circuit Judges Milan D. Smith, Jr. and N. Randy Smith.

The oral argument will take place at the William K. Nakamura U.S. Courthouse (poster available) in Seattle, Washington, enabling me to make my first visit to Seattle. My son, who departs for his first year of college this fall, will be joining me, but sadly my wife is unable to attend, because she has some preexisting work-related commitments that require her to be elsewhere.

Before I visited New Orleans in March 2009, I asked readers of this blog for recommendations of things to do, places to visit, and restaurants, and this blog's readers provided me with so very many great recommendations and ideas. Because Seattle, in addition to being a very nice place to visit, is also quite far away, I'm planning to arrive a couple of days early and head home a couple of days after the oral argument. That will enable us not only to see the Seattle Mariners host the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, but it will also leave other free time to visit the city and have some fun.

Readers who wish to offer recommendations of places to eat and/or things to do and places to visit in Seattle are invited to forward those suggestions to me at this blog's email address. Thank you!
