120106GoldenDawn3 THE CLERK: Calling Case C-05-00432, the Hermetic4 Order of the Golden Dawn versus David Griffin. Counsel, please5 step forward and state your appearances.6 MR. CRONEN: Good morning, Your Honor, Mike Cronen for7 Plaintiffs, Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, Inc. And Mr. Sam8 Webster is our client representative.9 THE COURT: Good morning.10 MR. HEVIA: Good morning, Your Honor. Jorge Hevia11 representing Mr. Griffin.12 THE COURT: And Mr. Griffin is in court?13 MR. HEVIA: Yes.14 THE COURT: All right, thank you very much.

And I want to say to Defense Counsel11 that the filings that you have sent to chambers have had an12 aroma of cigarette smoke, and we find it an aroma difficult to13 deal with.14 So, again, I'm not going to, obviously, impinge upon15 the rights that anybody has -- either you or anybody in your16 office -- to smoke, but if you -- when you do submit your17 papers, you need to make sure that they are free of that.
