I'm a district court clerk, work for one of the judges. I get asked for legal advise all the time, I'm not a lawyer and cant give legal advise even if I wanted to. Some of the worst are a select few of the attorneys (no disrespect bellalou, like every profession there are some bad eggs) 90% of them are great people and a lot of fun to work with. But the others like to call and ask how I think the judge will rule on a motion, what they should submit and when I think they will get their response. Makes me want to bang my head against the wall.
