The Fugitive Lawyer in front of the ERC complex in Grizedale

The Fugitive Lawyer has negotiated an immunity and extradition deal for the three reporters charged with crimes of conspiracy, transferring the three to West River.

“Passions are too high in the East River, and I think the judge knows that,” the lawyer said. “West River has been actively courting Waterbank citizens, so it’s a good fit. The three will be transferred to an undisclosed location and will not be allowed to publish.”

The deal has the support of moderates in East River, though the tension between East and West Rivers remains. Waterbank citizens have been discussing moving to West River in greater numbers after the arrest of the reporters.

ERIA PD is claiming that Tunisian Moon Coffee is complicit in the theft of the cocktail napkins that are the primary evidence holding three Waterbank News reporters. The three are still being held, but as police are trying to retrieve the evidence, time is running out.

“They’re out in a day,” said the Fugitive Lawyer.

The police have released footage of a Tunisian Moon Coffee truck being used by someone matching the description of the APB around the time of the heist.

“Our driver’s a good looking guy,” said Tunisian, “but what makes you think it was a guy that took them? The description doesn’t say it’s a dude…”

Waterbank News received bad news today after an East River judge ruled that the cocktail napkins seized in Club Prowl were admissible in court.

The three napkins are said to have part of a manifesto for Waterbank separatism and scribbles showing an East River celebrity eating a crow.

“They are offensive and provoking,” the ER Attorney General said after the arraignment. “We are pleased that the judge agreed.”

“We were drunk,” said one of the defendants to the press. “We believe we are being scapegoated and that the napkins actually have an idea for mac and cheese on them. We were drunk, so, I can’t be sure.”

The case will now go on to Blacksborough District Court, one of the toughest courts in East River, and currently running out of the Pippen Fire Department (Central Pierce affiliated). The defendants, who are defending themselves, are pleading with the Fugitive Lawyer to come to their aid.

“If I believe that there really is mac and cheese on the line, I’m there,” said the Fugitive Lawyer.

A taxi driver in the Prototype Tri-State is suing a homeowner for “reckless use of a driveway,” after they wrecked their car on a pick up.

“The driveway is totally crazy,” the driver told us. “So yeah, I called Baker and Sun to see if the Fugitive Lawyer is available.”

The homeowner has also contacted the law firm and is equally upset. “This guy drives into my house and has the audacity to sue me?! I sue him!”

The former UCS rep that was fired for mistaking the words “world peas” for “world peace” has won a stunning victory in court, landing a hefty compensation and recognition for the mistake as “a better approximation of intent.”

Jury members were stunned at the compelling logic of the victim’s counsel, none other than the fugitive lawyer, who made a case not only that an error was made by UCS, but that they should use ‘world peas’ instead.

“Retaining the Fugitive Lawyer is one thing that changes all the legal landscape,” explained a Professor at Waterbank Law School. “He is a case study in out of the box litigation. I hear he even argued to have the court in session on the high seas to avoid capture.”

“We were happy to put the court on a boat,” a legal clerk told us. “That’s the beauty of a decentralized Waterbank and SPF 15.”

A private conversation between Chia, the CEO of Feral Marine and the Fugitive Lawyer was recorded and sent to the Waterbank News, which immediately prepared it for print.

“It just turns out that Feral engineers are not very quick about developing weapons systems. They refuse to talk to anyone else about it, but it seems that they are genuinely afraid of how powerful the Lynx might be. Meanwhile the weapons development team is bogarting the prototype build and the Lynx is so expensive to build that we could only afford to build the prototype. I really could use a drink.”

A garbled voice that is likely the Fugitive Lawyer’s asks about prepaid contracts.

“The procurement process for weapons from the SL Navy is pending. Since Feral is not a military company. We have no deals in place with any weapons makers yet. My head of legal said that he is trying to work out a deal with someone.”

The Fugitive Lawyer says something about a transport plane, then Chia answers.

“We did the C-23 Sherpa design a long time ago. Our legal department did something right and they sold the rights to that to an aviation company. They’re back to working well, but we may put you on retainer.”

Szym Tower in Northbridge (link) has reopened after finalizing interiors, thrilling the Prototype Tri-State area and the WBA.

“This is a huge development,” said WBA President Sketch Sun, back from week of meetings in the Prototype Tri-State area. “The Tower and the Convention Center are links for the world and put one of the biggest world economies on track for dominance.”

Szym Tower lives up to the hype with stunning views overlooking the extensive forests of Northbridge and Prototype and plenty of commercial space. Stores, hair salons, boutiques, office space, and even a TV studio have already found a home in the tower, and more is on the way.

“They’ve really put in all the things you need,” said a Museum of Forgotten Technology administrator visiting the Tower. “We’re thinking of holding the Museums Convention here, and if I get my way, we’ll also be eating here every night!”

Built by NTBI engineers and installed with Gentek and NBS equipment, the Szym Tower and adjoining Peter Nelson Convention Center are primed to handle conventions.

“The convention space can accommodate most trade shows,” explained Waterbank Marketing, a company that handles conventions. “Except for the ‘Big Booth Trade Show.’ Every convention center hates that one.”

The Peter Nelson Convention Center also has ample parking – something that other convention centers lack.

“Real estate is expensive,” said Grace Development Agency, “so a lot of meeting centers have almost none. The P. Nelson has lots of parking, and space. It’s a beautiful location.”

Everything has been arranged for in the complex, and the Prototype Transit Agency has been working overtime with planned bus and rail lines. “You can imagine how it’s going to be with rail access from Prototype and bus access from Glenbrook – it will truly be a destination.”

Naturally, a large convention will have hordes of hungry visitors, and the area is ready to serve.

“So, let’s go down the list,” said Waterbank Marketing. “Rodex, Larsons, and Yankee diners. Tahda Mart, Astaro food trucks, and a Michigan rated five star restaurant.”

The restaurant on the 22nd floor of Szym Tower is ready to serve discriminating guests that know what fork is right. Already the talk of foodies, the restaurant has earned a reputation.

“Oh yeah, it’s Michigan rated,” explained the Fugitive Lawyer. “The Michigan rating system is much more practical than the Michelin rating, too. When not being chased by police I intend to take my clients there. On their time, of course.”

Accessible from a driving-friendly road network, the Szym Tower and the Peter Nelson Convention Center can be accessed by the Prototype link at right, and a three minute drive east over the Prototype River.

The fugitive lawyer has been spotted in the rural town of Glenbrook (link to local gas station), where he was seen exiting a regional bus and walking to a local pizza place.

No one thought anything of it until later that week when a surveillance camera on a private estate in the Glenbrook Woods caught the same man inside a home.

“We don’t get too many drifters here,” explained a local police chief, “so we never ran the face until the B and E. That’s when the Waterbank warrant came up. We looked for him, but we think he’s moved on by now.”
