THE ADVOCATE V O L . 7 5 P A R T 1 J A N U A R Y 2 0 1 7 131 VOL. 75 PART 1 JANUARY 2017 LEGAL ANECDOTES AND MISCELLANEA By Ludmila B. Herbst, Q.C.* A LONG-RETIRED COURTHOUSE Highway 5A from Merritt toward Nicola Lake leads past a surprising sight— a sizeable white building with blue trim, with “Court” and “House” on either side of a provincial coat of arms above the front door. Fronted by a large lawn and partly obscured by trees, it does not give the impression of ever having been a government building. Briefly, however, it was. NICOLA COURTHOUSE * Ludmila B. Herbst, Q.C., is the assistant editor of the Advocate.
